Our Board

Nau mai, Haere Mai
Meet The School Board 

Sumner School Board has the overall responsibility and accountability for our school and our primary objectives are determined by the Education and Training Act 2020, to ensure:
  • Every student at the school can reach the highest possible standard in educational achievement
  • The school is a physically and emotionally safe place for all students and staff 
  • The school is inclusive of students of differing needs 
  • The school gives effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi
These primary objectives flow through all of the Board’s work, starting with the Charter and Strategic Plan, which is the Board’s key guiding document.
Some of the specific things we do as a Board:
  • Set the strategic direction and long-term plans for our school in consultation with the school community
  • Monitor the Board’s progress against our Strategic Goals
  • Monitor and evaluate student progress and achievement
  • Oversee the management of staff, property, finances, curriculum and administration
  • Ensure that government priorities are met
  • Fulfil the intent of the Treaty of Waitangi by valuing and reflecting New Zealand’s dual cultural heritage
  • Appoint and support the Principal and assess their performance.
  • Act as good employers to all staff at our school.

Below you can see our 2022 Governance Guide which outlines our working plan for the year.
