Announcement : 

NEW SCHOOL UNIFORMS SURVEY: Kia Ora e te whānau,  I am looking at changing our school uniforms with additional pieces. I would appreciate your input to gather thoughts around what our new uniform could look like and how adding pieces such as a P.E. uniform for our senior students could impact whānau. The reason behind the change is our off shore suppliers have increased their prices. I have sourced a local manufacturer to hold and supply stock for our uniforms. The process behind the change of uniforms is as follows:   Gather student voice   Gather Whānau voice   Gather Staff voice   Share findings with whānau, staff, students    Present responses to the School Board   Whānau, staff, students are notified of the outcome and possible changes timeline     Could you all please take a moment to check the new designs, vote and answer a couple of questions. Click on the link below to access the survey:  Waatea School uniform change survey Ngā mihi nui, Whaea ZaraWaatea School Principal

Lines of Communication

We have an open door policy and welcome discussion with you on matters of interest or concern related to your child(ren). 

The preferred time for korero with teaching staff is outside teaching hours and depending on the amount of time required, prior arrangement of a suitable time is appreciated. 

In event of an issue arising, we aim to manage your concerns in the following way:

In the first instance, a concern in relation to a particular class, child or kaiako should be raised with the kaiako involved.

In the event the concern is not resolved, contact our Tumuaki Tuarua, then contact our Tumuaki, then contact our Board of Directors (in writing). 

In our experience concerns are normally resolved quickly when the concerns are communicated promptly.

Email is always a good way to communicate with us.  Please refer to the ‘Our People’ section of the website for staff email addresses.
