Campbells Bay School


School Introduction

Since opening in 1925 this decile ten school has a student roll of between 850-900. The school caters for students between the ages of 5-11 who live within the school’s enrolment zone. Campbells Bay School also provides a small number of places for international students. Set in park-like grounds the school has many purposeful-built facilities to provide for the needs of the students.

At the heart of the school are people, with the children being at the centre of the attention. Its aim is to grow learners for life. Learners for life are effective communicators, thinkers, self-managers, and citizens who strive for excellence. Its actions are designed to ensure the ambition of growing learners for life is a day to day reality for the students. In this context, the school’s governing body, the Board of Trustees, provides for the overall direction of the school through policy setting and strategic planning and, in consultation with the senior leadership of the school, sets achievement targets. Its current priorities are outlined from the Board of Trustees.

Its values are respect, resilience and kindness and it is currently implementing a new launch through professional development from Positive Behaviour For Learning to emulate these values in all that they do.

• The curriculum is non sexist, non-racist and non-discriminatory; it ensures that students’ identities, languages, abilities, and talents are recognised and affirmed and that their learning needs are addressed.

• The curriculum encourages all students to reflect on their own learning processes and to learn how to learn.

• The curriculum has meaning for students, connects with their wider lives, and engages the support of their families, whanau, and communities.

• The curriculum offers all students a broad education that makes links within and across learning areas, provides for coherent traditions, and opens up pathways to further learning.
