Lyall Bay is a primary school of around 400 tamariki.

We work hard to ensure that we live our Purpose Statement, 


"Building the Best Learners”

"Waihangatia ngā Ākonga Tino Pai"

Our School Values: Manaaki (Respect), Whakapono (Integrity), Pākiki (Curiosity) and Hiranga (Excellence) are central to the way we interact as a school community.  Discussing and reflecting on the values is an integral part of many of our classroom programmes.


We believe in offering a broad and balanced curriculum that is 

driven by the learners' needs. We place great emphasis on: 

  • The development of high-quality literacy and numeracy skills

  • Working with our children to help them become engaged and

  • Inquiring learners who have the skills to ask questions, find answers, evaluate information and take action

  • Providing our children with a wide range of opportunities in the arts, culture and sport


The development of a strong partnership between parents/whānau and the school is very important to us. We encourage parents/whānau to share what they know about their children with us. We have a genuine ‘open-door policy’ and welcome questions and encourage people to raise concerns with us to help us improve our school. 

We welcome you to visit us and experience just how rewarding it is to be part of Lyall Bay School.
