The diagrams on the following pages show the inter-relationships between the Te Aho Matua wāhanga.
Te Tino Uaratanga in this document is the section of Te Aho Matua that sets out the English interpretation of the long term outcomes for students.
The visual representation, using colour, denotes how each of the other five wāhanga links to Te Tino Uaratanga. Depicting the wāhanga in this way shows the clear links between the indicators and the long-term outcomes defined in Te Tino Uaratanga.
Each wāhanga includes an overarching statement focused on student outcomes that acts as an introduction. This statement represents a summation of the indicators that follow. The colour is a visual representation of how each wāhanga links to the long term outcomes defined in Te Tino Uaratanga.
Te Wāhanga Framework (the indicator tables) acknowledges the diversity of Te Aho Matua Kura Kaupapa Māori. It recognises culturally specific features and acknowledges the importance of qualitative data in this education environment. ERO recognises the value of observable behaviour and whānau practice.
Each Wāhanga has a group of indicators. Each indicator is supported by a rationale that provides an insight into the overall content. This is followed by examples of some of the observable student behaviour and whānau/staff practices and beliefs that contribute to each indicator and influence it. Research and theory that provide the foundation for key ideas, beliefs and practices are listed.
The focus is on the student, the desired outcomes from Te Aho Matua, and the whānau practices and beliefs that contribute to these outcomes.
