TRANSITIONING TO SCHOOL
Frimley is a large (550-600 students) school on the western side of Hastings, near the Hospital and expressway. We have a diverse student roll and are decile 4. Our students come from a range of areas but predominantly within our zone.
We have a large, enthusiastic and committed team of teachers, learning assistants and support staff. We aim to provide a broad, rich and student centred learning programme where all learners reach their potential and experience success.
Frimley students are involved in a lot of hands on practical learning and experiences to not only support their learning but to create the memories so important in childhood.
In our Frimley New Entrant classes we know that tamariki arrive at school with their kete full of knowledge and skills that they have acquired during their first years of life with whanau and possibly within an early childhood setting. We acknowledge that not all tamariki are the same. We know tamariki start school with a range of foundation skills and abilities. We believe it is our job as teachers to help our tamariki become confident and successful in these skills in their own time and in their own way in a Play Based setting.
We strive to provide our learners with the very best opportunities and innovative programmes and resources to support their learning. What happens in schools now is probably quite different from what it was like when you were there. Why not come in and see us in action?
