We're upgrading the StepsWeb Course
for Term 2

For the past six months our StepsWeb team has been busy developing and extending our current Course by adding more features including new activities focusing on explicitly teaching new phonic patterns and spelling rules.

We want our teachers teaching their students, not getting bogged down with unnecessarily planning and reporting when StepsWeb can do this for you. For more information about the Course upgrade click here.

The course upgrade will begin at 10am NZT on 21 April. We expect it to take roughly 2 hours. StepsWeb will be unavailable during this process.

The graph above shows how the old levels will line up with the new levels. For example, a student who is half-way through Level E will be placed half-way through Level 5. You can also see the additional Foundation Levels for earlier learners, as well as the extension content for older learners.

Have you got everything you need for the Course upgrade? Download the PDF below so you know how to communicate these changes with your educators, parents and students.

Workbook policy


Workbooks will be 50% off for all of Term 2
(21 April - 8 July)

We are also upgrading the workbooks, giving them a fresh look and expanding them to cater to a wider range of students. Workbooks will be available for Foundation Levels A – D and main Course Levels 1 – 12.

To compensate for the unavoidable disruption, all workbooks will be at half price throughout Term 2. Workbooks purchased in 2022, but unused can be sent in to us for an exchange. Please email us at to organise this.

Workbooks can be purchased, via the StepsWeb Store button from 22 April. Manuals will be available from mid Term 2.
