Governance Strategic Overview

The Board of Trustees governs KingsGate School to ensure the needs of these primary areas are addressed.

DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: Appropriate assessment is to be used to inform teacher planning, identify students who require special assistance and to provide feedback for parents. Maori, Pacific nations students & ESOL students , gifted and talented students and students with special needs. Special consideration will be given to students who fall into these categories when teaching and learning systems are developed.


All teaching and learning in the school is to be presented in a way that reflects the special character of the school. This is a reflection and integration of our Christian worldview.

 The school also exists to support Christian parents to educate the children from this shared  Christian worldview. The home-school relationship is  given priority at all times.


Staff are provided with exceptional professional development to ensure they can provide effective teaching and learning experiences in the classroom, cover all aspects of the New Zealand Curriculum and enable students to reach the appropriate National Standards in learning. Property and resources are managed in a healthy and safe way, giving priority to areas that are identified in the Strategic Plan of the school.


Priority will be given to the teaching and learning of numeracy and literacy, especially for students in Years 0-4. Effective teaching practice and pedagogy will be used. Students achievement will be carefully monitored and needs arising will be addressed.
