Learning, Teaching Beliefs

We believe in:

  • Developing caring, sharing, lifelong learners who are independent thinkers able to set goals and solve problems.

  • Maintaining an open partnership between school, community, and home.

  • Teaching with aroha.

  • Providing a safe, caring learning environment.

  • The importance of the past, the history of Tautoro, te Ao Māori, te Ao Pakeha.

  • Improved outcomes for all students, especially those at risk.

  • Recognising individual strengths and providing opportunities to enhance each child’s academic, physical, social, emotional and cultural development.

  • Using effective formative assessment teaching pedagogy.
