At Manurewa West Primary School the Literacy programme is an integration of oral language, reading and writing. Learning through play (Junior School), cultural responsive practices and digital technology is woven through teaching of literacy across the school. We are a school of high expectations and excellence in all teaching and learning. Regular and purposeful assessment and inquiry is used to inform planning and teaching where learning is personalised, differentiated and inclusive. Acceleration to meet learning goals is embedded into daily practice so that individual or groups of students are enabled to lift their learning levels.
