Before school and After school care
Our school offers a before and after school care service through Kelly Club, which is situated in our school hall. Please contact the office for details.
We are a PB4L School (Positive Behaviour for Learning). Our Statement:
“At Stanmore Bay we aim to create a caring environment, developing respectful relationships with our school wide community (parents, staff and students), to improve social, cultural and academic outcomes. To do this we will consistently model, teach, acknowledge and praise positive behaviours.”
We will show respect for ourselves.
We will show respect for others.
We will show respect for the environment.
Bicycles and Scooters
We believe children must know the Road Code and have the necessary skills for safe cycling. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that bikes are securely locked at school. Children must disembark at the gate and walk with their bikes and scooters through school grounds. All cyclists must wear an appropriate sized helmet. It is recommended that scooter riders have appropriate safety gear.
Scholastic Book Club helps children purchase good quality paperback books for home reading. Once a term, a brochure will be sent home. Books arrive after about three weeks. Stanmore Bay School receives free points with every book ordered and with these we can obtain a number of other books for the school.
Concerns and Complaints
If something happens at school that you are unhappy with, please do not hesitate to contact us. The following procedure is requested:
1. Contact the class teacher by note, email, or by organising an appointment through the office.
2. If you are still not satisfied, arrange a meeting (again, through the school office) with the Whanau Leader, AP/DP and then if you feel it necessary, the Principal.
3. If you are still not happy, write to the Board of Trustees. A copy must be given to the Principal. The matter will be discussed at the next Board
