Some pupils can hardly toilet themselves, let alone reach National Standards in reading and writing, a principal says.
Aranui Primary School, in Christchurch, has slashed achievement targets in half to reflect its high number of transient pupils, those who have English as a second language and post-earthquake stress.
“We’re already seeing 5- and 6-year-olds now who are significantly disadvantaged academically,” principal Mike Allen said.
“The gap gets bigger and bigger as they get older and you’re desperately trying to catch up all the time.”
Allen said schools such as his were “slammed” over standards results.
