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.

At Te Puke High School we have a number of ways that we report to parents and caregivers about progress and achievement to support learning and progression.

Progress Checks are completed by subject teachers every fortnight. These reports are designed to give an indication of how students are going with their learning within their classes. These reports will be emailed to parents/caregivers and will also be available through our Web Portal.

NCEA Updates are completed once a term for Terms 2, 3 & 4. These updates are designed to give senior students and whanau an indication of how students are progressing towards gaining NCEA Level 1, 2 and 3.
