Questions for Parents to ask:

Parents have an important part to play in the conversations, and we want to ensure that you are included in the conversation - rather than just be given a whole lot of information.   Below is a list of questions that you might like to ask / discuss during your conversation with the Tutor teacher. 

  • How is my child tracking with their achievement?  (Junior – E AsTTle/Curriculum Levels / Senior – NCEA)
  • Is my child on track to be at the appropriate curriculum level / achieve the appropriate NCEA qualification by the end of the year?
  • How is my child tracking with their achievement in towards gaining University Entrance (NCEA Level 3 / Approved subjects / Literacy requirement?) Y13 Students 
  • What assessments are still to go / when are they due?
  • How is the school help going to help my child prepare for external / end of year exams? Will it be offering a tutorial programme?
  • Are their options to help my child gain their NCEA qualification this year if they don’t gain enough credits?
  • What can we do at home to support our child with their learning  / study needs / completing their assessments?
