Ruru Specialist School Values


Values are the qualities which guide and show in the way we go about our school work and relationships with others as our Ruru School Community.

Our values were decided by us as a community – students, staff, board and families

Values we share:

  • Excellence in teaching, learning and behaviour.
  • Respect of cultures, abilities and environments.
  • Integrity through honesty, reliability, responsibility,
    accountability and fairness.
  • Inclusion through recognizing and affirming all students identities, abilities and talents.

Inclusion is more than the setting a child/young adult is in, it is about how they are welcomed,
helped and learn and how they are accepted as part of the community.

Ruru is a fully inclusive school.
