Our assessment

Our program has been tried and tested in New Zealand schools

We are deeply concerned with the growing issue of worsening physical health due to the increase in digital device use and the resulting sedentariness that accompanies this. We are concerned because the issue is progressively worsening and it is effecting younger children. In addition, the longer that issues occur for, the more resources are required to help

At Primary Alignment we believe the best way to counter this problem is by delivering a high-quality assessment program which is used to identify where to focus our attention and resources
