Our Student Mangement and Reporting System

The way we report to parents has now changed.

This year we have switched our student management student to 'Hero'. This decision was made as it is very easy to navigate, has a complimentary caregiver app and can be used as Online Reporting Portal for whānau. 

This enables us to be able to provide you as parents a picture of your students learning in real-time rather than the twice per year reports we have previously provided. Overtime, it will provide an excellent picture of what is happening in your child’s class. This means that all hard copy reports (Mid and End of Year Reports/Learning Logs) will no longer be supplied on paper. All reporting to parents will be online and we will assist with the use of a device if required. 


Carterton School teachers are undertaking professional development to provide you as parents with timely information on your child's progress throughout the year. These reports will consist of progress graphs across the curriculum and specific samples of work as evidence, so you have a clear picture of how your child is progressing.


HERO is a dynamic and robust reporting system that allows teachers, parents, and students to access learning in an online environment that is secure, easy, and effective. We are excited by the possibilities of keeping you all more informed and up-to-date about your child’s progress.

This information video has been created by the HERO team. It outlines a number of features that the HERO app enables for parents, teachers and students.
Please note: Some of the features will be turned on and used at later stages when staff have received professional development on their use.
