Welcome to Waipu Primary School. We look forward to your active participation in your child's schooling.
Our school, pupils, staff, parents and local community work together to create a caring, stimulating and challenging learning environment. "Quality is what we do around here". Your children will receive an education based on the national curriculum enhanced by creative activities, sports and cultural events. We are proud of this school and its achievements.
For the parent child teacher partnership to be successful we need to be well informed about our students. The staff meet with parents early in the year for a brief chat and at formal interviews in June and November. Should you have any questions or concerns please make the Teacher your first contact. If you would like an interview at any time of the year please make an appointment so that the teachers can have ready any information to answer your queries. Many aspects of our lives affect children.
Any major changes or happenings communicated to the teachers are confidential and will allow the teacher to handle the school situation for your child with understanding and caring.
To adhere to the Privacy Act, the school may have to request your permission for information to be passed on to school related services.
We would welcome your support should this be necessary, as any referral would be made for the best interests of the student. Examples - Speech Language Therapist, Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour (RTLB). You will be consulted from the outset if a referral is being considered.
Your child and family will gain greatest benefit from this school by supporting our endeavours in these ways so the school will be an effective learning environment for us all:
I hope your association with us will be a happy and rewarding one.
