Learner Profile

Our APS Learner Profile is based around our school values - courage/maia integrity/pono & unity/whakakotahi. Our values are embedded in everything we do and are integrated in all learning areas

This diagram informs teaching and learning at APS. It shows what our students need to know, understand and do. We believe that the 4 aspects are critically important in order to be successful in life. 

By the end of Year 3 we are establishing each of the 4 core capabilities so students begin to understand and become aware of how to apply them. 

By the end of year 6 we have embedded each of the 4 core capabilities  so students have a deep and broad understanding of each of them and are able to apply these within different contexts and with increasing confidence.
