PURPOSE AND SCOPE
Some key statements in the Ministry of Education document and to which we subscribe include: The New Zealand Curriculum is a statement of official policy relating to teaching and learning in English-medium New Zealand schools. It sets the direction for student learning and provides guidance for schools as they design and review their curriculum.
A parallel document, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, will serve the same function for Māori-medium schools.
Both start with visions of young people who will develop the competencies they need for study, work, and lifelong learning and go on to realise their potential. Together, the two documents will help schools give effect to the partnership that is at the core of our nation’s founding document, Te Tiriti o Waitangi / the Treaty of Waitangi. The New Zealand Curriculum applies to all English-medium state schools (including integrated schools) and to all students in those schools. Schools that also offer Māori-medium programmes may use Te Marautanga o Aotearoa as the basis for such programmes.
