Hillsborough Primary School caters for students from Years 1 to 6. Our Decile 8 school has become increasingly culturally diverse, reflecting ongoing demographic changes in our community.
The school continues to provide highly effective teaching and learning opportunities for students. There is a shared commitment to promoting challenging and relevant teaching approaches that enable students to become confident and successful learners.
The School is divided into 3 syndicates, based on year levels.
Principles are evident when the following actions are seen in our practice at Hillsborough Primary School.
We will provide an environment of high expectation, where children and staff attain the best level of learning possible.
Children and staff have an appreciation and understanding through ongoing professional development of staff which reflects our changing world, will give our children an appreciation and understanding of being global citizens.
All children and staff will be given the opportunity to learn in a safe, inclusive environment.
We will encourage our children and staff to acknowledge and respect Tikanga Maori, capturing the spirit and intent of the Treat Waitangi.
We recognise, celebrate and value the cultural diversity within our school community and in the broader, surrounding community.
Our integrated curriculum will encourage authentic learning, including opportunities for inquiry based processes.
in order for the curriculum to have maximum impact on our children's learning, we will have flexible, transparent communication between the school and parents, and develop strong positive relationships between the school and families, seeking voice and involvement.
