'Creating Future Achievers'
NAU MAI, HAERE MAI WELCOME TO ELTHAM PRIMARY SCHOOL
Eltham School is located in Taranaki and caters for students in Years 1 to 8. At the time of this ERO review the school roll is 151 students, with 56% Māori and a small number of Pacific heritage.
The vision is to create future achievers. The school aims for all students to have a sound grounding in the foundation skills of literacy and numeracy and to develop the skills, attitudes and values they will need to become lifelong learners who are able to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
The school has strengthened the inclusion of te ao Māori in the curriculum. Formation of key community relationships assists in bridging partnerships between the school and whānau. Further planned developments to establish a vision for Māori success with whānau and increase the use of culturally relevant, localized contexts across the curriculum are purposeful next steps.
Trustees demonstrate a commitment to achieving success for students and promoting the positive inclusion of their community. Strategic and annual planning reflects relevant priorities for the board to guide ongoing improvement. Current policies and procedures reflect legislative requirements. From ERO Report 2018
