FERNLEA PRIMARY SCHOOL
A caring community where learners are challenged to achieve personal excellence
Fernlea is a decile 4 school located in Wainuiomata. We are a contributing school, which means we teach students from years 1 – 6. We have ten classrooms and a roll that ranges between 230 and 260 students.
We are in the process of reviewing our Fernlea School curriculum and our implementation statements. Driving this is our commitment to helping our students achieve their potential in all areas of the curriculum with a focus on literacy and numeracy. Our values underpin everything that we do at Fernlea. They encourage our students to:
· Show heart/manaaki
· Be connected/tuhonohono
· Be a thinker/whakaaro
· Have a Can do Attitude/Tae
“To encourage learners to be confident, independent achievers ready to accept the next challenge in their learning journey”
Everything we do reinforces our aim to develop and strengthen these four values in the students.
The Fernlea School Board of Trustees undertakes to take all reasonable steps to achieve the purpose, aims and objectives in the Charter, to take full account of the National Education Guidelines and to meet all statutory obligations. The Board, following consultation with the community, has approved this charter.
Fernlea School’s curriculum statements and policy documentation will recognise the unique position of Māori, the dual heritage of New Zealand and its cultural diversity. It will provide students with experiences and understandings in cultural traditions, language and local and national histories including personal experiences where practicable.
