A Message from the Manager

Our Vision: "Equitable, inclusive success for all"

RTLB Cluster 1 is made up of 71 schools ranging from Decile 1 to 6 mostly 1 to 3.

The vast geographical reach is from Motatau in the South to Cape Reinga in the North with a Western boundary past Opononi and an Eastern reach to Russell. Many of the schools have teaching Principals who strive tirelessly to provide wonderful educational opportunities for their students. We have a range of Kura Kaupapa Maori, Kura a Iwi and Bi-lingual settings which we service with an awesome dedicated professional team.

We have 29 staff and myself as manager. This includes a leadership team of 5 Practice Leaders, four of whom have dedicated teams and one situated with the Manager in the head office.

There are 7 offices housing staff. These are: Kaitaia Primary school [head office], Kaitaia Intermediate, Taipa Area School, Kerikeri Primary school, Pakaraka School, Northland College Kaikohe, and Broadwood Area School.

Teams are made up of successful and experienced teachers who have committed to specialised postgraduate studies in Special Education. Many have other specialised fields and all are totally committed to developing and providing inclusive practices throughout the Cluster

As Manager I am very proud of my team, the service they provide and the uniqueness they bring. I am also proud of the way we work together.
