Latest Public Achievement Information (PAI) released

The latest data on how our children are doing in school has been released.

You can read more about PAI on the Education Counts website.

PAI information for schools includes national standards and NCEA results.

If your child is a preschooler, find out why early childhood education gets their learning off to the best start, how you can support your child’s learning at home and how to choose an early learning service.

Once your child is at primary school, their achievement will be assessed against National Standards or Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori.

National Standards and Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori let teachers and parents know how each child is doing in reading, writing and maths and identifies those kids who may need some extra help to progress.

The National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) is New Zealand's main secondary school qualification for students in years 11 to 13.
