Learning at Clyde
Akoranga mo ake ake: Learning for Life
Clyde School's strengths are the integrated, school wide programmes and a shared staff understanding of our expectations for effective teaching and learning. Teachers strive to provide well balanced learning programmes, where critical thinking, cooperative learning strategies and digital literacies are an integral part of their approach.
We provide specific programmes for at risk students and for our more able students and Clyde School strongly supports the inclusion of students with special needs. There are programmes in place for individuals and groups with additional needs and their progress is carefully monitored and reported to parents and the board. Staff are given regular opportunities to develop their professional learning on inclusive practices and differentiated curriculum provision based on the educational framework of Universal Design For Learning.
Junior Syndicate - NE - Year 4
Senior Syndicate - Year 5 - 8
Our Senior Syndicate consists of 3 classes consisting of composite year levels. In 2022 we have Kārearea years 5/6, Kiwi years 6/7, and Ruru years 7/8. Teachers in this syndicate are dedicated to developing independent learning skills in each child through a range of strategies in each curriculum area. We recognise the individual strengths and interests of each student and teacher and use this to create learning programmes that will build on these and challenge them in many ways. Each student is provided with or brings their own digital device and this is used as one of the many tools to enhance their learning. Barb Lambeth is our Senior Syndicate Leader and can be contacted via email.
