Welcome to Ponsonby Primary

Welcome to the Ponsonby Primary School Web Site. It is the belief of our learning community that we are all here, teachers, parents and students to enrich children’s learning. It is the close co-operation between parents and teachers that ensures quality educational experiences for our students. The school’s core business is children’s learning. We hold the belief that every child will be provided with opportunities to achieve success and develop their pers onal pride. Our learning community values the culture of this school, where high quality learning and success, are encouraged.

Children returning to school at Level 2

Below are the expectations that we, as a school, will be implementing under Alert Level 2:

  • Under Alert Level 2 the school will be open for all year levels.

  • We would like to reduce parent congregation in the school, to do this we would like you to drop off your child in the morning at the gates, parents may enter the site to drop off children if necessary, you will need to check in using our QR codes to do this.

  •  Likewise, picking up your children at the end of the day will be from the front gates. Year 4,5 and 6 children will leave through the top gate, Year 1, 2 and 3 will leave from the bottom gate.

  • Exit times for the classes at the end of the school day will be staggered for our Kakariki children, we are advising parents in Yr 1 & 2 to pick up their children (including older siblings) between 2.30 – 2.50. Our year 1 and 2 teachers will contact you shortly to gather information for picking children up early. This will only apply for Yr 1 and 2 children.

  • During the school day, the gates will be locked so you will need to call the office or email prior to coming on to the school site.

  • We will be displaying QR codes and posters at our gates, all parents coming onsite must scan in, we encourage all our community to download the NZ COVID Tracer App and use it when coming onsite.

  • Please do not send your child to school during Alert Level 2 if they show any signs of illness such as a runny nose, temperature or cough.  Some common cold viruses are around, and we do not want to create any issues that complicate the management of COVID-19.

Distance learning will only be available for those unable to attend school, i.e those who are self-isolating or have underlying health issues.
