Newton Central School Strategic Plan

In the last year the Board of Trustees has been setting the school strategic plan for the next 3-5 years. We’d like to share that plan with you and get your input at whanau hui this term. Watch out for dates for these meetings.

In the meantime we encourage you to read the strategic plan.

In brief, the school vision is: "A school that provides leadership in achieving learning success for diverse communities, through productive relationships and Tiriti-based practice."

Our mission is: "We grow our tamariki to become critical and creative lifelong learners and positive participants in their communities."

And we have six goals:

1. Learning Success for All
2. Productive Partnerships
3. Valuing People and the Environment
4. Modern Learning Environments
5. Leading in Treaty and Maori Education Innovation and Practice
6. Grow Unique Newton Students

What these goals mean and how we plan to achieve them is outlined in detail in the strategic plan. We look forward to getting your input.


It is our school policy that children must wear hats outdoors at school during Term 1 and Term 4. Children who do not have hats will be required to sit in the shade for all break times. Please send a named hat to leave at school.
