Freyberg Community School Health Questionnaire - 2017
Dear Parents / Caregivers

Each year we ask you to look at our school charter to ensure that the values and goals are in line with community expectations. From this review, the strategic (long term plans) and annual plans are reviewed to check that we are on track. Policies (that determine how the school is run) are reviewed throughout the year. Copies of our school policies are available from classrooms or at the office. We encourage you to look through them and offer suggestions.

Every 2 years we are required to survey the community to ascertain how they would like us to teach the Health curriculum. We choose to do this yearly as part of our annual review so that we can affect changes for the following year.

Do you agree with the Freyberg School goals?
1. To promote an active partnership with the community in providing educational, cultural, recreational and social learning opportunities. 2. To ensure the day school remains the hub around which the community school continues to develop. 3. To provide a friendly, positive, supportive, caring environment, which encourages the involvement of caregivers. 4. To recognise and respect the rights of both children and adults. 5. To encourage and guide children in taking responsibility for their own actions. 6. To enhance learning outcomes by providing a broad curriculum with a particular focus on literacy and numeracy in the first 4 years of school.

Legislative changes
There has been media publicity about children being able to start school at 4 years old. Schools (or local clusters of schools) will decide if children still start on their 5th birthday, or start in cohorts, e.g. at the beginning of each term, and/or mid-term. The law change has not taken effect yet, and the earliest students could enter school under a cohort entry policy will be Term 1, 2018. Our school’s policy will be decided by the Board of Trustees early in Term 4, 2017. At present Freyberg children start school at the beginning of the fortnight following their 5th birthday. What are your views on the new cohort entry legislation?

It is important to us that our families are happy with our school. How happy are you at Freyberg?
