We value working in partnership with you to support your child in their learning.
For Year 1-3 students we report on an anniversary basis, which means our kaiako (teachers) will meet with you and provide you with a written report every 6 months that your child has been at school until the end of Year 3. This enables us to measure your child’s progress against expected milestones for them as a learner.
For Year 4-8 tamariki we meet with you for Student Led Conferences at mid year and you will be provided with a written report. You are also be provided with a written report at the end of the year, which complements our Whānau Aspiration Hui. The written report indicates how your child is achieving against the New Zealand Curriculum.
Throughout the year our kaiko will share “real time learning” of your child in action across the curriculum, via SeeSaw. This provides evidence, which supports our written reports.
At the end of every year we hold our Whānau Aspiration Hui for every student to collaboratively set our shared academic, social and emotional goals for your child for the following year. You will meet with your child’s current teacher and their next teacher for these hui.
Should you observe any change in your child's progress please ask for an opportunity to discuss your concern with your child's teacher, or the Principal. Staff are happy to meet with you at any convenient time to discuss your child's progress and development.
There are many occasions when parents wish to approach staff members for information about a child's progress or school activities. Please phone the office, or contact staff directly and arrange an appointment to ensure the person is available.
Staff members welcome any enquiries and appreciate parents' concern and help around the school. Please feel free to approach the school at any time over any matter.
Staff welcomes the involvement of whānau in class and school activities. If you would like to be a parent helper, please discuss with your child’s teacher.
