At wharepapa South School we use the iDeaL Approach. iDeaL is a complete and comprehensive approach that lifts literacy outcomes for ALL akonga.
With the support of Learning Matters in Te Awamutu, as a school we use this science backed, diagnostic, systematic and cumulative structure to support your child on their literacy journey.
Here is an introductory video about Structured Literacy for you to get a better understanding of ho it works.
For more information about how this is being implemented in your child's class, please feel free to talk to our teachers.
