“Botany Downs School is well placed to sustain the current good practices that promote equitable and excellent outcomes for all children.” ERO review, 2016

“The school continues to prioritise literacy and mathematics as the foundation skills for children’s learning. Children have many opportunities to apply these skills through the inquiry-based integrated curriculum. Children’s languages and cultures are being increasingly included in class programmes. This supports children to have a greater sense of identity in their class and school. Children benefit from programmes led by specialist staff in music, swimming, te reo Māori, kapa haka and choir.” ERO review 2016
