We have extensive programmes for students who have special needs, and for priority students needing support to work towards achieving the National Standards. Junior teachers are Incredible Years For Teachers trained, and all teachers deliver inclusive programmes that nurture children’s social, emotional, and academic competence.
Pukeoware School promotes ‘student voice’, and likes to know what children think, feel, and understand about their education. Students are encouraged to discuss their learning both in and out of school. Reporting to parents on student progress and achievement includes learning conferences, where students share their learning journey and next steps. Formal written reports complement this.
Pukeoware students are proud of their school, and parents have many opportunities to be involved in their children’s learning. Our website and facebook page shares the wonderful work that happens at Pukeoware School, and engages parents and caregivers in its daily activities
We are part of the Waiuku Principal’s Network, and a Waiuku Community of Learning / Kahui Ako. There are currently 10 schools in the COL.
The Board of Trustees is made up of a mix of elected and co-opted members. Trustees are committed to providing the best opportunities for students and teachers. They are willing to learn and have attended workshops facilitated by the New Zealand School Trustees Association (NZSTA).
Pukeoware School achieved a successful ERO review in 2019, and is on a 3-year review cycle
