Te Kōhanga Reo o Ngā Purapura Hou - 07/08/2019

1 He Whakamārama

He Kupu Whakataki

Ka whakahaeretia tētahi aromātai tāpiri i runga o te whakataunga ā te Toihau Arotake i Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga.

E aromātai ana Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te whānuitanga me te whai hua o ngā mahi ā te kōhanga reo ki te whakatutuki i ngā take i whakatakotohia ai i roto i te pūrongo aromātai mātauranga o mua atu i tēnei, me ētahi atu wāhanga rānei i tāutuhia ai whai muri o taua aromātai.

Ngā Whakataunga mō ngā Whakapuakitanga

Ko tēnei aromātai tāpiri i whakaritea i runga i te aromātai o te whakatutukitanga a te whānau i te whakahaeretanga o te kōhanga reo, ki ngā wāhanga i tāutuhia ai e te pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga, i mua atu, me ngā take rānei kua tāutuhia whai muri o taua aromātai. Ko ngā whakataunga mō ngā whakapuakitanga e pā ana ki tēnei aromātai, ko te titiro ki:

  • te whakamahere me te aromātai - tae atu ki te whakamahere hōtaka, te aromatawai, te aromātai, te arotake whaiaro a te whānau, te whakamahere me te pūrongo
  • ētahi atu tino take i tāutuhia ai whai muri i te arotake o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga.

2 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Ngā Purapura Hou ki Kawerau. Nō te Pipiri o 2018 te pūrongo arotake o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i tāutu ai i ngā āhuatanga maha hei whakapai ake i roto i ngā mahi whakamahere me te aromātai. Kua mahi ngātahi te whānau ki te whakatutuki i aua wāhanga hei whakapai ake. Ki tō rātou whakaaro, ko ngā whakapaitanga i whakatutukihia e rātou whai muri i te arotake o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga, i pērā ai nā te kaha ake o te noho pūmau me te whai wāhi atu a ngā mema o te whānau.

3 Ngā Whakaaturanga

Te Whakamahere me te Aromātai

Kua pai ake ngā whakaritenga e pā ana ki te whakamahere hōtaka, te aromātai, me te aromatawai. Kua mahi ngātahi ngā kaimahi ki te whakatakoto i ngā aronga e riterite ake ana i roto i te whakamahere hōtaka, te aromatawai, me te aromātai. Ka whakatū ngā kaimahi i ngā hui i ia wiki ki te whakawhiti kōrero mō ngā whakahaeretanga i te kōhanga reo. Kua mōhio ake ngā kaimahi ki te whakahono i ngā wheako akoranga i whakamaheretia ai ki te ahu whakamua a ngā tamariki.

Kua whakapai ake te whānau i te whakaritenga me te whakahaeretanga o tō rātou kōhanga reo. Tū ai ngā hui i ia te wā, ā, he pai te taetae atu a te whānau. He auau te pūrongo i ngā whakahaeretanga ki te kōhanga reo. Kua whakatutukihia ētahi āhuatanga o te whakahaere i ngā kaimahi. He mahere rautaki hoki i nāianei. Kua whakaritea ētahi atu hui hei āta whakapuaki i te tino kiko o ngā mahi ki te whakahaere i ngā whāinga rautaki. Kua arotakengia ngā kaupapa here. He huringa taiāwhio i nāianei mō ngā mahi arotake. E hāngai ana ngā mahi a te whānau ki ngā tūmanako me ngā taumata i whakaraupapahia ai ki te tūtohinga.

Kua pai ake hoki ngā whakaritenga e pā ana ki te arotake whaiaro. Tū ai ngā wānanga ā-whānau puta noa i te tau, ā, ka arotahi ki te whakapiki ake i tā rātou whai wāhi atu ki te kōhanga reo me te ako i te kaupapa o te kōhanga reo. E noho kotahi ana te whānau ki te whai wāhi nui atu ki te mātauranga o ā rātou tamariki.

Ngā Whakaritenga Matua ka Whai Ake

Ahakoa ngā tino whakapaitanga whai muri i te arotake o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga, me whakatairanga tonu te whānau me ngā kaimahi i tēnā kua whakatutukihia e rātou tae noa mai ki tēnei wā, ā, me whakapakari anō hoki rātou i ngā whakaritenga o te wā.

Me whai kiko, me whai aronga hoki ngā tuhinga whakamahere hōtaka mā te whakatakoto i ngā tūmomo taumahi ako ka whakaratohia mā ia rōpū tamariki i te kōhanga reo, i ngā whāinga ako, ā, i ngā huarahi ka whāia e ngā kaimahi ki te hāpai i aua tūāhuatanga. Me hono pū ngā aromatawai ki ngā whāinga ako i whakatakotohia ai ki ngā mahere o te hōtaka.

Ahakoa ngā tauira papai e tohu ana i te whai huatanga o te aromātai hōtaka ā ētahi o ngā kaimahi, he mea nui kia whakapuakihia e te katoa o ngā kaimahi tēnā e whai hua ana ki te hōtaka akoranga, me tēnā hei whakarerekē kia poipoia ake ai ngā tūmomo rōpū tamariki.

Me whai kiko ake ngā mōhiohio ki te mahere rautaki, mō te āhua o ngā tino whāinga o te kōhanga reo mō meāke nei, me ngā huarahi ka whāia e te whānau kia tutuki aua whāinga hei te pae tata me te pae tawhiti. Mena kāhore aua kiko kōrero i roto i te mahere rautaki, he uaua ki te whānau te aromātai i te whai huatanga o tā rātou ahu whakamua ki te whakatutuki i ō rātou wawata mō te kōhanga reo.

4 Ngā Taunakitanga

I whakawhanakehia e Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga me te whānau o te kōhanga reo ngā taunakitanga e whai ake nei, arā, kia:

  • arotahi ki te whakatairanga ake i te kounga o ngā whakaritenga o tēnei wā mō te whakamahere hōtaka, te aromātai, me te aromatawai
  • whakapakarihia ngā mahere rautaki, hei hāpai i te whānau ki te whakatutuki i ō rātou wawata paetawhiti mō tō rātou kōhanga reo.

5 Hei ā hea Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga aromātai anō ai i te kōhanga reo?

Ka whakahaere anō Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te aromātai whai muri o Te Kōhanga Reo o Ngā Purapura Hou i roto i te toru o ngā tau.

1 Background

Introduction

A supplementary evaluation is undertaken at the discretion of the Chief Review Officer of the Education Review Office (ERO).

ERO evaluates the extent and effectiveness of actions a kōhanga reo has taken towards addressing issues specified in its previous ERO evaluation and/or any additional areas identified since that evaluation.

Terms of Reference

This supplementary evaluation is based on an evaluation of the performance of the kōhanga reo governing body and management in relation to areas identified in the previous ERO report or issues identified since that evaluation. The terms of reference for this evaluation area to investigate:

  • Planning and Evaluation – including programme planning, assessment and evaluation, and whānau self-review, planning and reporting
  • Any other significant issues identified since the previous ERO review.

2 Context

Te Kōhanga Reo o Ngā Purapura Hou is in Kawerau. The previous ERO review report of June 2018 identified several areas for improvement in relation to planning and evaluation. The whānau have worked collaboratively to address these areas for improvement. They attribute the improvements since the previous ERO review to the increased commitment and active involvement of whānau members.

3 Findings

Planning and Evaluation

Programme planning, evaluation and assessment practices have improved. Kaimahi have worked collaboratively to establish more consistent approaches to programme planning, assessment and evaluation. Kaimahi hold weekly hui where they discuss kōhanga reo operations. There is greater awareness by kaimahi to link planned learning experiences to children’s progress.

The whānau has improved the organisation and management of their kōhanga reo. Regular hui are held with good attendance by the whānau. Reporting about kōhanga reo operations is regular. Aspects of personnel management have been addressed. A strategic plan is now in place. Further hui are planned to unpack necessary detail about the management of strategic goals. Policies have been reviewed. There is now a regular cycle of review in place. Whānau practices align to the expectations and standards outlined in the charter.

Self-review practices have also improved. Whānau wānanga are held throughout the year and focus on increasing their involvement in the kōhanga reo and learning about the kaupapa of kōhanga reo. Whānau are united in their contribution to their children’s education.

Key Next Steps

While there have been clear improvements since the previous ERO review, whānau and kaimahi should continue to build upon what they achieved to date and strengthen current practice.

Programme planning documents should provide detail and direction for what learning activities will be provided for each group of children in the kōhanga reo, what the learning goals will be, and how kaimahi will support this. Assessment must link back to the learning goals set in programme planning.

While there are good examples of effective programme evaluation by individual kaimahi, it is important for all kaimahi to share what is working well in the learning programme, and what can be changed to better cater for different groups of children.

The strategic plan requires more detailed information about what the specific goals are for the future of the kōhanga reo and how the whānau will achieve those goals in the short and longer term. Without this detail in the strategic planning, it will be difficult for the whānau to evaluate how well they are progressing towards achieving their aspirations for the kōhanga reo.

4 Recommendations

ERO and the kōhanga reo whānau developed the following recommendations:

  • focus on lifting the quality of current programme planning, evaluation and assessment practices
  • strengthen strategic planning to support the whānau to achieve their long-term aspirations for their kōhanga reo.

5 When is ERO likely to evaluate the kōhanga reo again?

The next ERO evaluation of Te Kōhanga Reo o Ngā Purapura Hou will be in three years.
