Parents & Caregivers

We Encourage Parents & Caregivers to Work with their Child’s Teachers

Research shows that when parents & caregivers become actively involved in their child’s education and form supportive relationships with the school, their child tends to be more engaged at school.  At Te Puke High School, we consider each student’s learning and achievement as a strong positive partnership between the student, parents/caregivers and the school. We actively encourage parents & caregivers to work positively with their child’s teachers to improve their child’s learning and achievement.

Prospectus

Our prospectus provides an overview of our school and our philosophy for the education of our students.  It is an important ‘touchstone’ for our school, presenting who we are, what we believe in and how we operate.

Hot Tips for Parents & Caregivers

This ‘Hot Tips’ booklet provides parents & caregivers with important information about how they can support their child at Te Puke High School so that they can realise their potential.

Uniform

Every student who enrols at Te Puke High School agrees to wear the correct uniform with pride and in the correct way.  This includes on their way to school, during the school day and when they leave the school grounds.
Parents/caregivers are expected to support the school by ensuring that their child always wears the correct uniform correctly.
 Regulation school uniforms or sports uniforms must be worn when travelling.
Te Puke High School will take whatever steps necessary to ensure the uniform is worn correctly.

Reporting

At Te Puke High School we have developed our reporting structures to support our culturally responsive and future-focused vision.

For Year 9 and 10 Theme-based classes we use student online-portfolios to report back to parents/caregivers on student progress. Learning Conferences will provide opportunities for students, parents/caregivers and teachers to discuss learning and next steps together. Junior SPIN reports (Option classes) will be available through the parent Web Portal for 2018.

Senior reports can also be accessed through the parent Web Portal. Those parents with no internet access will have the reports posted to them. Parents and caregivers of senior students will also be invited to Learning Conferences to discuss their child’s progress and next steps.

Paper copies of our senior reports are available on request.
