Positive Behaviour for Learning

Waipu Primary is Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) school. This means that we utilise initiatives and strategies that help parents, whānau, ākonga (students) and teachers, address behaviour, improve children’s well-being, and increase educational achievement.

By strengthening relationships and creating more positive home and school environments, we remove barriers to engagement and improve students’ chances to achieve at school and beyond.

PB4L is a systematic approach involving a suite of initiatives. These include universal whole-school change initiatives, targeted group programmes, and individual student support services.

Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery an early literacy intervention that aims to reduce reading and writing delay by providing intensive, daily one-to-one literacy instruction to students who are falling behind in reading and writing after one year at school. 

Early Learning Support Classroom Teacher and RR teacher co-plan and teach a small group with similar needs after 6 months at school.


Discovery is held every two weeks in the Junior School. Teachers set up classrooms with a variety of art and craft activities and students are able to select in which activities they would like to participate. At the end of the time, students share back to their classes the activities that they completed.
