We have completed our lockdown exercise and all students, staff and persons on-site are safely accounted for.  Everyone did extremely well and responded to instructions.  A notice will be going out to parents/caregivers tonight to provide some more information about our emergency lockdown procedures.

I would like to personally thank you for your support while we conduct these practices.  Kind regards – Richelle McDonald, Principal

Reporoa Primary School is conducting a lockdown exercise.  All updates are provided on our website.  Please do not come to the school or phone the school as you will not be attended to.  We will update this website when the exercise has been completed.  Thank you.


Welcome to Reporoa Primary School. We are a learning community that caters for years 1 to 6 with a roll of about 140.

Our vision is “Lengthen our stride to become knowing”

This is supported by our mission statement to provide an education that is learner focused, inclusive and supported by productive partnerships.
As a PB4L (Positive Behaviour for Learning) school, at Reporoa Primary School we use our “REPS”. This stands for Respectful, Engaged, Positive, and Striving. We pride ourselves in displaying these values through everything we do.

As a school we value the strong relationships that we have with our parents, whanau and community. We love the small country feel of our school as we are able to know all of our students and personalise their learning, supporting them to achieve success as learners and as people.

We have a committed and friendly staff who developed a localised Reporoa School curriculum using SOLO. We are also very excited to have a STEAM programme in place. This provides excellent learning opportunities for all of our children. We encourage our children to have a voice in their education so they feel positive about themselves and take ownership of their learning.

Parents and visitors are always welcome in our school. I value open and honest communication at all times. Enjoy exploring our website and feel free to give us feedback too!
