2 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Reporoa ki te marae o Mātārae, ki Reporoa. Kua whakatakotohia e te whānau tētahi mahere mahi hei whakatutuki i ngā take i tāutuhia ai ki te pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te Whiringa-ā-nuku o 2017. Mai i taua arotake a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga kua pā mai ētahi rerekētanga ki ngā tūnga kaimahi. I rīhaina te kaiako o mua, ā, tokorua ngā kaiāwhina hou i nāianei. E noho pūmau ana te whānau ki te hāpai i ngā whakapai tonutanga ki te kōhanga reo, ā, kua whakatutukihia e rātou ngā āhuatanga maha o ngā take i whakatakotohia ai ki te pūrongo o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga.

3 Ngā Whakaaturanga

Kua whakatakotohia ngā tukanga e pā ana ki te whakamahere me te aromātai i te hōtaka. Ka āta whakarite te whānau i te whakamaheretanga o te hōtaka akoranga, me te whakapuakitanga o tēnei kia pai ai te whakamōhio i ngā kaimahi me te whānau. He auau ngā whakawhitinga kōrero e pā ana ki te hōtaka akoranga me te whai huatanga o te hōtaka, ā, he pai anō hoki te whakatakoto ā-tuhi nei i aua kōrerotanga. E whai wāhi atu ana ngā tamariki ki tētahi marautanga i whakamaheretia ai.

Kei te pai haere ngā whakaritenga e pā ana ki te arotake whaiaro. He pai te ahu whakamua a te whānau, whai muri i te arotake o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga. He pai te tae ā-tinana atu ki ngā hui ā-whānau. Ka hoki atu te whānau ki tā rātou mahere ā-tau i aua hui, ā, ka aroturuki i tā rātou ahu whakamua mā ngā āhuatanga matua o ngā whakahaeretanga. E arotahi ana te whānau ki te whakatairanga ake i te kounga o te atawhai e whakaratohia ana mā ā rātou tamariki.

Kua whakatinanahia e te whānau tētahi mahere rautaki e whakatakoto ana i ngā whāinga whakawhanake o te paetawhiti. Ka ārahi, ka aroturuki hoki tā rātou mahere ā-tau i te ahu whakamua o ngā kaupapa o ia tau. E arotahi ana te whānau ki te whakapai tonutanga, mā te whai whakaaro nui anō hoki ki te rōnakitanga o te pae tata me te pae tawhiti.

Kua whakatutukihia e te whānau te nuinga o ngā wāhanga i tāutuhia ai ki te pūrongo o mua mō te whakahaeretanga o ngā kaimahi. Kua oti i a rātou ngā tukanga kia arowhaingia ngā kaimahi katoa e ngā pirihimana, tae atu hoki ki ngā mema o te whānau e whai wāhi mātātoa ana ki te kōhanga reo. Kua whakatinanahia e te whānau ngā tukanga e hāpai ana i a rātou ki te whakapūmau i ā rātou kawenga mahi hei kaituku mahi pai.

Kua whakatinanahia e te whānau ngā tukanga e tika ana mō ngā wā moe me ngā wā tīni kope. Ko te hauora me te haumaru o ngā tamariki e noho matua ana.

Ngā Whakaritenga Matua ka Whai Ake

Ko te arohaehae i ngā kaimahi tētahi āhuatanga hei whakawhanake tonu. Kāhore te whānau e noho mārama ana ki te pūtake o te arohaehae. Kua tae ki te wā kia toro atu te whānau ki te tautoko e tika ana mō te whakatinanatanga o tētahi tukanga arohaehae e whakamana ai i ngā pūmanawa o ia kaimahi, ā, e tāutu ana hoki i ētahi atu whai wāhitanga mō te tupu ngaiotanga.

He mahi anō hei whai atu, kia mōhio ai ngā tamariki ki ngā mahinga i te hōtaka akoranga, ā, kia taea ai e rātou te āta whakawhiti haere ki ngā tūmomo taumahi, puta noa i te rā. I ētahi wā, he rangirua te āhua o ngā tamariki ki tēnā ka whai ake hei mā rātou i roto i te hōtaka akoranga. He mea nui kia noho mārama ngā tamariki ki tēnā e hiahiatia ana ki te hōtaka akoranga, ā, kia tino rite anō hoki ngā kaimahi ki te hāpai i te whakawhiti ngāwari tonu o ngā tamariki ki ngā tūmomo taumahi.

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:

  • arotake, kia whakapai ake hoki i te tukanga arohaehae a ngā kaimahi
  • whakamahere mō te rere ngāwari o ngā whakawhitinga mahi o ngā tamariki, puta noa i te hōtaka akoranga.

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 Reporoa 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 planning, implementation and evaluation, self-review practices, staff appraisals, strategic planning, annual plan, personnel matters and health and safety

  • areas of non-compliance – including curriculum planning and implementation, programme evaluation, self-review practices, personnel management and staff appraisals, strategic and annual planning, police vetting processes, and procedures to monitor children at sleep times.

  • and any issues identified since the previous review.

2 Context

Te Kōhanga Reo o Reporoa is located on Mātārae marae in Reporoa. The whānau have put an action plan in place to address the concerns identified in the October 2017 ERO report. Since that ERO review, there have been changes in staff. The former kaiako resigned and there are two new kaiāwhina. The whānau is committed to supporting ongoing improvements in the kōhanga reo and have addressed many of the issues in their previous ERO report.

3 Findings

Programme planning and evaluation processes are in place. The whānau ensure that the learning programme is planned and shared so that kaimahi and whānau are well informed. Discussions about the learning programme and its effectiveness are regular and well documented. Children’s experience a planned curriculum.

Self-review practices are improving. The whānau have made good progress since the previous ERO review. There is good attendance at whānau hui. The whānau refer to their annual plan during these hui and monitor their progress against key aspects of operations. The whānau are focussed on raising the quality of care for their children.

The whānau have implemented a strategic plan with long-term developmental goals. Their annual plan guides and monitors progress of annual activities. The whānau are focused on continual improvement with short-term and long-term sustainability in mind.

The whānau have addressed most areas of personnel management identified in the previous report. They have completed police vetting processes on all kaimahi as well as whānau members who are actively involved with the kōhanga reo. The whānau have implemented processes that support them to uphold their responsibilities as good employers.

The whānau have implemented correct sleeping and nappy changing procedures. The health and safety of children is paramount.

Key Next Steps

The appraisal of kaimahi remains an area for development. The whānau are not clear about the purpose of appraisal. It is time for the whānau to seek support to implement an appraisal process which affirms the strengths of each kaimahi and identifies further opportunities for professional growth and development.

Further work is required to ensure that children know the routines in the learning programme and can confidently move between activities during the day. At times children appeared uncertain about what they needed to do next in the learning programme. It is important that children are clear about what is required in the learning programme and that kaimahi are well prepared to support children to transition smoothly.

4 Recommendation

ERO and the kōhanga reo whānau developed the following recommendations:

  • review and improve the appraisal process for kaimahi
  • plan for smooth transitions for children across the learning programme.

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

The next ERO evaluation of Te Kōhanga Reo o Reporoa will be in three years.
