National Standards

National Standards LogoThe National Standards set benchmarks for student achievement at key points of each child’s education. NZ Schools are required to report student progress and achievement against the National Standards in reading, writing and mathematics. Each year, parents receive a Mid-Year Progress Report and an End of Year Report summary, which include teacher judgements against the standards.
