Our Values




Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Somerfield School in leafy Somerfield, the home of the “SMART Somerfield Kid”. Our expectation is to have children who are socially adept, motivated, articulate, resilient, thinkers. We have a well equipped school situated in park like grounds. Our children are taught by hard working, passionate and committed teachers, who are well trained and focussed on the learning of every child.  Our school works in partnership with our whānau to provide a holistic learning environment where we know children’s wellbeing must come first before they can learn. Our teachers work collaboratively in well resourced classrooms and are supported by a large learning support team focussed on individual needs.
