Making it work at One Day School
How do you know that the time is right and your child is ready for this?
The most successful transitions happen when you and your child are both invested. Making the decision for your child without them being on board is not recommended. They need to visit the school, talk to the students and staff and be able to visualise themselves at TSA.
How do you let your child’s mainstream school know?
It is really important to be upfront and clear when talking to your child’s school. Let them know you are choosing to enrol your child at TSA One Day School to them give additional support for their language-based difficulties. We will give you all the paperwork you need to have your child’s enrolment with us sorted.
As a social enterprise, there is no direct link with Ministry Of Education guidelines. The New Zealand Education Act section 25B Release from school states: The principal of a State school may if satisfied that a student will receive outside the school tuition acceptable to the principal, release the student from attendance at the school, for a period or periods agreed with a parent of that student, to receive the tuition.

"The teachers at Summit Point go above and beyond to nurture the different learning styles of students."
"Rebecca supported us to understand our child’s strengths and challenges and find a way to foster his love of learning."
"We have been working with Summit for almost a term and my word, our daughter has come a long way since she started at the school."
"It’s a hard decision sending your child to a ‘special’ school, but now we’re out the other side, we realise how much our daughter needed the attention and environment that Summit Point offers."
"Her time at Summit gave our daughter the space and time to learn at her own pace, be recognised for her talents and participate in the running of the school."
"Graduating from Summit, our child is a confident learner and has a range of strategies which have helped her transition to high school."
