The National Standards have been designed to support the national curriculum. The standards describe the core capabilities that students need at specific stages of schooling in order to access and meet the demands of all curriculum learning areas.

Where teaching and learning is guided and directed by The New Zealand Curriculum, schools monitor and report progress and achievement using National Standards. The National Standards focus on reading, writing and mathematics in years 1 to 8.

A general comment is available for each school via a separate button on the navigation menu. The general comments have been provided by schools and relate to:

school strengths and identified areas for improvement

the basis for identifying areas for improvement

planned actions for lifting achievement

how students are progressing in relation to National Standards.

Identical information is available for the school’s Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako through the Communities of Learning page: Waipaparoa Community of Learning.

Notes:

‘x’ = a category, for example, Boys, has less than 5 students, or the school has masked the data, or if left unmasked the data may easily lead to deducing other masked values.

‘p’ = less than 4 students in this category, for example Boys, are performing at or above.

Ethnicity is prioritised. Not all ethnic groups are shown on the table so summing the ethnicities shown may not add to the total.

Notes:

Where there are fewer than 5 students in the ‘Total’ for a Student Type or Year Level, all OTJs for that group are masked with an ‘x’. Or if left unmasked the data may easily lead to deducing other masked values.

‘p’ = less than 4 students in this year level, are performing at or above.
