English Immersion

We have nine classes (mainly composite due to roll size) from Years 0-6. Our curriculum framework is the New Zealand Curriculum, which features English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Physical Education, Health, The Arts, and Technology, and from 2020 Digital Technologies. http://nzcurriculum.tki.org.nz/

Our approach to curriculum delivery is Thinking Based Problem Based Inquiry Learning as we aspire for our children to be thinkers about their thinking, to be solutions focused and to become creative, collaborative life long learners.

The diversity of our English immersion students is enriching and to be celebrated. Our diversity is what makes Birkdale Primary School. We encourage parent, caregiver and whānau involvement at every level and encourage each of you to be active participants at every level of your child’s school life.
