It is my pleasure to welcome you all to Papatoetoe East Primary School. We believe this is a special place for children’s learning. We believe that this environment supports everyone to learn from each other and most importantly for us to provide a variety of learning experiences for pupils. At the same time to help prepare our pupils to continue on their learning journey through the different year groups and then onto Intermediate school. Our priority is to develop hard working, independent, confident and happy pupils. Happy that the pupils want to be at our school in their classroom every day, confident that they are able to challenge themselves and be challenged while at school and working as hard as they can at their learning with the guidance and support from our teachers.

I hope that you all enjoy finding out about our school and can use the information that we have presented here on our first web site.
