Our challenge is to raise mathematics achievement across Tipu Maia Kahui Aka Years 1-10 with a particular emphasis on students who are currently underachieving. Our Years 1-10 data shows that our achievement levels in Mathematics decrease over time.
- Across our community, 76% (1051/1391) of our students are achieving At or Above the expected National Standards. Our challenge is to raise this to 85% (1182/1391). Of the 340 students achieving Below or Well-below 162 are boys and 178 are girls.
- Our Years 1-8 data shows that Maori and Pacifika students are over-represented in the Below and Well-below categories of maths. Our challenge is to reduce this achievement gap. Currently, 69% of our Maori students are achieving At or Above the National Standards compared with 78% for NZ European students. Our challenge is to lift the achievement of all students to at least 85% achieving At or Above the National standard with a particular focus on Maori and Pacifika students students.
- Our e-AsTTle data at the end of Year 10 shows that 69% (98/143) of students are achieving at Level 5 of the curriculum in mathematics. Our challenge is to have at least 80% (115/143) of all students achieving at or above Level 5 in mathematics by the end of Year 10.
Target Years 1-8
- All Students:
In particular, because our student achievement in maths decreases over time, we aim to increase the percentage of students achieving At or Above the National Standard in Mathematics by the end of Year 8 to at least 85%. In 2016, 72% (127/176) of Year 8 students achieved At or Above the standard. This is a shift of 13% (23 students).
Target Years 9-10
We aim to lift the achievement of our students achieving At or Above Level 5 of the Mathematics curriculum by the end of Year 10 from 69% (98/143) to 80% (115/143) by the end of 2020. This is a shift of 11% (17 students).
