We report formally to you three times each year. The report in term on is a “Settling in/Attitude” report. In terms, two and four are progress and achievement reports which provide details about areas of strength, areas of challenge, assessment results and comments about next learning steps.

At anytime you are welcome to come and talk to us about your child’s progress.

Understanding Reports Year 1-10

End Of Year OTJs

Curriculum Level Guide Using b (basic) beginning the level), p (proficient in the level) and an (advanced in the level). Our interpretation is that a “Below” judgment indicates that a student is between 6 months and 12 months behind their cohort expectation. A “Well Below” judgment indicates that a student is more than 12 months behind expectation.

Understanding Year 9 – 10 Reports

For year 9 and 10 students, the information in the mid-year and end of year report helps give you an idea of your child’s progress and achievement at school against curriculum expectations. As a guide student’s at Year 9 should be beginning curriculum level 5 and students in Year 10 completing it. The chart will help to give you an idea of general curriculum expectations.

For students in Year 10, the mid-year and end of year report can help guide decisions about NCEA courses next year. We have different pathways through NCEA to help students structure their learning according to their needs. More information and assistance will be provided to help students through this pathway.

Other information you may see in this report

To show more accurately where your child is within a curriculum level we use sub-levels to indicate, beginning the level (b), proficient in the level (p) or advanced in the level (a). For example, a student’s level of 4p writing would put them in the middle of Curriculum Level 4. We also use a score called a “Stanine” which rates achievement on a 9-point scale, 1 being low and 9 high.

Understanding Year 11-13 Reports

Achievement Standards appear on the report as Not Achieved (NA), Achieved (A), Achieved with Merit (M) or Achieved with Excellence (E). These are both internally assessed by the school and externally assessed (by national examinations at the end of the year). Students are learning towards the externally assessed standards throughout the year. The grade and credits gained will be reported to the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and will appear on the students’ Record of Achievement.

Unit Standards appear on the reports as Not Achieved (NA) or Achieved (A). These are internally assessed (throughout the year in school) and credits gained will be reported to the NZQA.


In order for a student to earn an Achievement or better, all aspects of the standard must be satisfactorily completed.
