Academic Progress Reports Explained

As a general rule, students will progress towards higher levels of the New Zealand Curriculum as they progress through their learning. Students progress towards key milestones and these milestones are tracked and monitored as students progress. When you review this information it is important to remember that some students do not fit this pattern of progression and all students progress at different rates. It is expected that the following pattern of progression would apply.

These results are a summary of academic achievement. Progress is reported against curriculum levels that align with Learning Area (subject) learning objectives. Students are measured against the New Zealand Curriculum, utilising curriculum and sub levels to signal the depth of thinking and understanding. This is one of the ways that we share achievement and progress with parents and whanau.
