Nau mai! Haere Mai!

The Education Review Office described our school as “an effective learning institution where Board & staff work diligently to provide students with high quality learning opportunities”.

At Malfroy School we recognise that parents, extended families and caregivers are of fundamental importance to children’s learning. This support is especially important in learning early literacy and numeracy skills. When your child begins at Malfroy School we will assess your child’s prior knowledge and skills and build on those to develop the children into independent life long learners.

Features at Malfroy School Include: 

  • A known and practiced mission statement proudly reflecting our cornerstone values.
  • Teaching staff who model the values of our mission statement and who focus on children’s individual learning needs.
  • Teaching and support staff providing special needs, learning and accelerent programmes.
  • A strong positive behaviour programme focussing on student well-being and restorative practices.
  • A modern library that provides opportunities for students to think, create and learn with the future in mind.
  • A Health Promoting School. Investing in the well-being of our students, staff and community.
  • A community minded school that offers mainstream, rumaki and Montessori.

A warm welcome is assured at Malfroy School where the uniqueness of each student is valued and nurtured.
