Welcome to Waipu Primary School new website!

Waipu Primariy School


Beannachdan, nau mai haere mai, welcome.

Waipu Primary School sits in the centre of a rural, coastal community on the beautiful east coast of Northland. We have around 250 students from Years 1-6.

Our core purpose, here at WPS,  is to provide engaging learning opportunities and experiences to all learners so that they can achieve to the best of their abilities. Our dedicated team of teachers work hard to ensure that all learners develop personal and academic capabilities along with positive relationships and a sense of belonging.
While our teaching programmes have a strong focus on academic achievement, we also provide a wide variety of other opportunities so that students can experience success in a range of areas both in and outside of the classroom.

We are a ‘Positive Behaviour for Learning’ school and have high expectations for behaviour. This, alongside our school values of Respect, Resilience and Kindness support the development of a positive, inclusive and safe learning environment.

Due to the hard work of a dedicated number of parents, Waipu Primary School is very well resourced. The school Board and PTA ensure that our teaching staff have what they need to meet the needs of all learners so that they can leave WPS as well rounded, confident young people, equipped to learn independently, collaborate effectively and contribute to positively to our society. 

I am proud to be part of an exceptional team of enthusiastic, motivated and committed teachers and support staff. We would love to welcome you to work in partnership with us, to ensure the best outcomes for our students.
