Targeted Areas for Achievement

Each year we are required to set "Achievement Targets" that must be reported on the the Ministry of Education. In 2009 our targeted areas are: Target 1 - Numeracy and Target 2 - Junior Reading. We expect teachers to closely monitor children who are in the targeted groups and we report regularly to the BoT to advise them of how we are progressing in the meeting of our targets. To view our targets please follow the links.
