Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L)

The kura runs the PB4L programme to encourage and promote positive behaviour. Should tamariki exhibit inappropriate behaviour, there are set procedures and consequences which are followed. These are set out on a behaviour chart written in collaboration with staff and whānau.

We have been running this programme for 3 years and our kura has now achieved Tier 2 status in the programme, achieving 100% over a three year period at Tier 1.

Peer Mediation

Peer Mediation is a system in which tamariki are encouraged to help each other talk together and work through difficulties in a positive manner. Trained tamariki take turns at helping others in the playground daily.

Peer Support for New Tamariki

Special attention is given to new entrants and other tamariki who have joined the kura to ensure their wellbeing is taken care of and they are able to participate fully in kura activities.

Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour – RTLB

Tamariki needing extra help with learning and behaviour may be referred to an RTLB teacher. Whānau will be notified if a referral is going to be made.

Kura Library

Tamariki are able to borrow books during class allocated library time. Intermediate tamariki have the opportunity to train and work in the library as monitors. The issue and return system is fully computerised and books are issued for 3 weeks.

Reports to Whānau/Caregivers

Teachers report to whānau regularly throughout the year. There are at least two meetings with whānau during the year, and two formal school reports.

If there is any matter regarding your tamariki’s progress you wish to discuss please arrange a time with the teacher concerned.

After Kura Care

Although the kura does not run an after-kura care programme, there are some local after-kura care options available. Please see the kura office for more information about this.

Dental Care

Tamariki will attend the Bee Healthy Regional Dental Service Hub at Miramar Central School at no charge, once a year. If whānau/caregiver have concerns about their tamariki’s teeth or a tamariki has dental pain, an appointment can be arranged by calling 0800 825 583

Whānau are welcome to contact the Dental Nurse regarding dental care and treatment. Call 388 8767.
