Vision and Mission Statement

Our Vision

To develop in students the desire to become and remain, life long learners
Ki te whakawhanake ki roto i nga ākonga, ngā hiahia kia noho hei ākonga mo ake tonu

Woodlands School’s special features:

  • Academic achievement above the national norm

  • Woodlands School will be one of the first primary schools in the Bay of Plenty that is a Positive Behaviour for Learning Restorative Practice School

  • We are a Positive Behaviour 4 Learning (PB4L) school.  This means we teach students social skills and our expectations around behaviour are clear and consistent.

  • Restorative Practice is the approach we use to deal with conflict, such as teasing or fights between peers

  • An individualised new entrant transition programme.  We will work with parents/whanau to develop a transition programme that suits individual needs.

  • We have a leadership programme for Year 7/8 students with a focus on community citizenship

  • The school’s beautiful safe physical environment supports creative play at morning tea and lunch times

  • Our new entrant classes are a combination of a play based approach and a more traditional approach

  • A free bus (funded by the Board of Trustees)

  • Two successful bilingual classes

  • We are well resourced with sports and outdoor education equipment
