Dean's Message

Kia ora Year 10s!

2020 is a big year for you with many changes. Our job as your Deans, alongside your Tutor Teacher, is to ensure you are making the most of your time here at Wellington College.

Junior Assessment Framework
The Junior Assessment Framework (JAF) is used to assess all students in Years 9 & 10.  It is designed to measure and develop students’ thinking skills.  It is based on SOLO taxonomy and has strong links to the NZ Curriculum levels.  See the documents linked below for more information – one explains the JAF in a basic way and the other is the framework itself, which shows how the different levels of thinking are graded.

Feel free to email our Curriculum DP, Dave Thorp, if you have any other questions:

Appeals Process


Students have the right to appeal any assessment-related decisions, including breaches of the rules, missed and late assessments, as well as grades awarded for assessments. Appeals are to be made within five school days from the time of the event, or once assessed work is returned and gone over by the teacher. For all appeals, an ‘Appeal Application Form 2017’ is to be completed by the student and handed to the appropriate HOD to process. Mr Thorp may be involved in the decision if needed. The decision made on the Appeal by the HOD/Mr Thorp will be final.
