Stepping out with confidence, students will: Develop a ‘can do’ attitude and a healthy sense of competition; Be motivated and self directed learners; Be positive in their own identity.

Clearview Primary Values

Our values are an integral part of our teaching and learning at Clearview Primary.


The children can earn awards for Demonstrating Respect, Acting with Integrity, Striving for Success and Being Responsible.  Children are proud to receive these awards in Assemblies.  Our Senior students have also designed Values tickets to give out in the playground to children.  There is a Values prize draw in each whole school assembly.

Key Competencies

Each term there is a focus on one of the Key Competencies from the New Zealand curriculum.

All children have the opportunity to explore and develop the key competency during Wonderings and Discoveries.

Wonderings and Discovery

Wonderings and Discovery provides an activity-based, student directed context in which the Clearview Competencies and Values can be explored and developed.

Children take part in learning journeys where they have the opportunity to test ideas, experiment and take risks.  Children are motivated, engaged to learn and are able to take control of their learning.


Our Inquiry Model is IGNITE – Into It, Get Going, Now We Know, Inquire, Tell The World, Evaluate.
