Strategic aim: All students are able to access the New Zealand Curriculum showing achievement against National Standards

Target One: Reading: Target 1. We aim to have all students make progress and in particular accelerate the progress of children reading below the level of the school expectations.

This target was added in April after discussions with the Education review Office.

The original targets including shifting one year 6 student to ‘at’ and increase the percentage of students achieving at or above and we aimed to shift more children to ‘above’ especially at the Y4 &5 level

Baseline data 2017 26.7%(4) students at year 6 (2017) are below the expected standard.

No students at year 3&4 were above the expected standard
