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.

Curriculum Progression Updates are also completed once a term during Terms 2, 3 and 4. These updates are designed to give junior students and whanau an indication of how students are going as they progress through the curriculum.

Learning Conferences will be held once a term where parents/caregivers, students & teachers will have a chance to meet to discuss the students’ progress and goals.
