Strategic Planning and Self Review

The whānau has developed a strategic approach to reviewing kura operations.

The kura charter, strategic plan,‘He Kura te Tangata: Ōkea Ururoatia’,and annual plan reflects whānau aspirations and goals for students’ learning and achievement for the next three years. Eight whānau ohu have been established to support governance and whānau activities. They share the responsibility for regularly monitoring, reporting and reviewing and managing kura operations. This collective approach forms a strong foundation to build whānau capability in their management and governance roles. The whānau is in a good position to sustain and maintain future kura developments.

Tino Ūaratanga

Students demonstrate success in their knowledge of te reo Māori as a basis for developing literacy and numeracy skills.

Te Reo Māori

The whānau has established a strategic approach in their pursuit to grow a community of te reo Māori speakers. Kura-wide goals, policy and practices ensure that te reo Māori is a priority to best support and advance students’ language skills. Whānau and staff use formal methods to gauge students’ understanding, competency and fluency of te reo Māori. They also identify and apply their own measures of success through the eyes of kaumātua and whānau observations.

The kura whānau demonstrates commitment to improving their ability in te reo Māori to support students towards realising the whānau vision and aspirations. Whānau members attend Te Ātaarangi, mōteatea and Heke Reo classes at Te Wānanga o Raukawa. High expectations for te reo Māori demonstrates the value placed on this taonga within the kura and its community. Pouako and students maintain a te reo Māori speaking environment.

A team of three TRN/KKM Te Aho Matua members work with the Ministry of Education in relation to Te Aho Matua and Ngā Whanaketanga to address the interim period from now until when Te Marautanga o Te Aho Matua is completed. Once completed an appropriate bank of standards will have been developed for KKM that adhere to Te Aho Matua.
