LP3 is a Wymondley Road School (WRS) initiative established in 2013. The aim of the programme is for school to work alongside identified learners and their whanau to support their learning. The programme provides opportunities for parents and children to learn together, building learning strategies focused on inquiry.
Learners are challenged to extend their learning outside the Wymondley Road School (WRS) teaching hours. WRS promote ako, the principle of reciprocity, acknowledging that learners and their whanau cannot be separated.
LP3’s underlying purpose is to ensure productive partnerships are nurtured through a greater responsiveness and accountability to learners and their families.
“Strong engagement and contribution from students and those who are best placed to support them – parents, families and communities, have a strong influence on students’ success.”
