Attending mainstream school
Many children go to a mainstream school and either get support in their classes from Resource Teachers of the Deaf (RTDs) or Communication Education Support Workers (CESWs), via video tutoring, or external support through our ASSIST liaisons who offer advice and guidance and regular monitoring to check progress is being maintained; this is dependent on what resources are available in your local area.
Deaf bilingual provisions
Students who meet the criteria can apply to enrol at Ko Taku Reo Enrolled School. These students would attend one of our primary and secondary school provisions located at a partner school.
Like a school within a school, students are enrolled with Ko Taku Reo
but integrated with the partner school; they wear the same uniform
(where applicable), follow many of the same procedures, are involved in
school events and some children even learn alongside their hearing peers
in the mainstream classes.
