Nurturing Environment – Connected Learners

Welcome to Ōmata. We are a state-funded full primary school with approximately 210 5-13 year old students in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand. We have a proud tradition as a community school and our reputation is based around a very successful partnership with families.

The culture of our school is supportive, vibrant and inclusive. Our school aims to empower our learners to be responsible, develop their interests and reach their potential by weaving together a rich, authentic, purposeful curriculum with teaching and learning that is innovative and place-based. We have reciprocal relationships with whānau, hapū and the wider community, creating a nurturing environment.

We have a stunning physical environment which includes a well established native bush with an outdoor classroom area and outstanding playground facilities. A very special feature of our school is the continuity of education we provide for children from Year 1 to Year 8. Our doors are always open to discuss any facet of your child’s education.
