The revised school vision reflects The New Zealand Curriculum and its importance in supporting students as 'confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners'. Literacy and mathematics continue to be curriculum priorities.
The Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) programme is in its third year at Sanson School. 'STARS' - self control, take responsibility, aroha, respect/resilience and self-belief - are the collaboratively developed values that underpin the school's approach to positive guidance.
