Te Takanga - Our Mission
"Maintain a challenging learning to learn community that responds to the interests, needs and talents of our learners."
We are very fortunate having such an attractive physical environment, and this, coupled with the strong relationship we have between school and parent, play a significant part in providing the education your child deserves. The pupils of Frankley School receive an education that is based on NZ Curriculum with cross competency skills and attitudes at its core.
We pride ourselves on the professional practice of staff in the delivery of these programmes taught, and for the rich and wide variety of the curriculum that the children have access to.
A feature of Frankley School is the highly successful development of "Innovative Learning Environments", collaborative teaching and learning with digital technology. In a school that is a home for the mind, there is an inherent faith that all people can continue to improve their intellectual capacities throughout life; and that learning to think is valid for all pupils at all levels and abilities. Through the way our school is organised and administered, in identifying what we see as our vision and core values, and the programmes we teach, we will provide a secure and rewarding positive learning environment for your child. Please walk through the open gates into our classrooms and learn alongside the children. We value your tangible presence and support.
