He uri e āta kitea tā rātou eke angitu ā-mātauranga, ā-tinana, ā-whatumanawa, ā-tangata hoki.

2 Ngā Putanga ki ngā Uri

He pakari ngā uri ki te taha ahurea, te taha reo matatini me te pāngarau. He tino mārama te tirohanga e pā ana ki te eke angitu o ngā uri. Ka ahu mai ngā uaratanga o te kura i te whanaungatanga me te eke angitu i roto i te mātauranga. Ko te whakapapa, ngā hītori, me ngā tikanga tuku iho o Ngāi-te-Rangi e whai wāhi matua ana ki te mātauranga. Ka tuitui ngā pouako i ngā mōhiotanga o te iwi ki ngā hōtaka e pā ana ki te reo matatini me te pāngarau. E ākina ana ngā uri kia patapatai, ā, kia whakapuaki hoki i ō rātou whakaaro. He ākonga angitu ngā uri.

Ka oke ngā uri ki te eke angitu. He nui ngā tūmanako o ngā kaiārahi me ngā pouako mō te eke angitu, ā, ka ahu whakamua ā rātou mahi ki ngā putanga o te kounga kairangi. Ka whakamanatia te whakapuaki mai o te whānau me ngā uri i ō rātou whakaaro me ō rātou wawata. E mōhio ana ngā uri ki ā rātou whāinga ako, ā, ka aroturuki anō hoki rātou i tā rātou ake ahu whakamua. Ka whiwhi rātou i ngā kōrero urupare e hāngai pū ana ki a rātou, ā, ka mahi tahi ki te taha o ngā pouako ki te tāutu i ngā taumata ako ka whāia tonuhia e rātou. Ka whakamahi ngā pouako i ngā paetae ākonga hei whakamahere i ngā hōtaka e hāngai pū ana ki ngā matea ako ake o ia uri. Ka whakapuakihia ngā mōhiohio ki te taha o te whānau, ā, ka whakamihia, ka whakanuia e te whānau te ahu whakamua. Ka eke angitu ngā uri i roto i te mātauranga, puta noa i te marautanga.

He ākonga pākiki, he ākonga auaha hoki rātou. Ka mahi ngātahi rātou, ka whakamātau haere, ā, ka whakawhānui hoki i ō rātou whakaaro. He pakari te tūhura haere o ngā uri i te ao o tō rātou hapori, me te ao whānui.

He mātau ngā uri ki te ao matihiko. Ka whakamahere ngā pouako i ngā hōtaka ka akiaki i te whakamahinga o ngā hangarau mōhiohio, whakawhitiwhiti hoki. Ka whakamahi ngā uri i aua taputapu ki te toro atu ki ngā mōhiohio, me te tūhono atu ki ētahi atu tāngata o ngā iwi taketake, puta noa i te ao. Ka patapatai ngā uri, ka whakapuaki i ngā āhuatanga o ngā ahurea e rite ana, ā, ka whakawhiti whakaaro mō ngā take o te ao. Ka whakamahia te hangarau mōhiohio e ngā uri, hei whakatakoto, hei aroturuki hoki i tā rātou ahu whakamua. He ākonga māia ngā uri.

Kei te mārama ngā uri ki tō rātou tūnga hei kaitiaki o te taiao. Ka whakatewhatewha rātou i te tini a Tangaroa, me te āta tirotiro ki ngā āhuatanga e whai pānga ana ki te taiao. Nā aua whai wāhitanga ako, ka whakahōhonu ake ngā māramatanga o ngā uri, ka whakatinana rātou i tēnā e mōhiotia ana, ā, ka whakaaweawe hoki i te āhua o ngā mahi a ētahi atu. Ka manaaki ngā uri i tō rātou taiao.

Ka kitea te tōkeke, te ngākau māhaki, me te tūmāia o ngā uri hei kaiārahi. Ka whakatauira te poumarumaru, ngā kaiārahi o te kura, ngā pouako me te whānau i ngā hononga papai. Ka ākina ngā uri ki te whakanui i te mana āhua ake. He whai wāhitanga mō ngā uri ki te whakamahere, te whakarite, me te ārahi hoki i ngā kaupapa, puta noa i te kura. Ka aromatawai ngā pouako i ngā uri hei kaiārahi, he kanohi, hei tangata whenua anō hoki ki te whānuitanga o ngā tūmomo horopaki. Ka whakamanahia te whai wāhi mai o te whānau, te hapori me Ngāi-te-Rangi ki te kura. Ko tā rātou hautū, tā rātou ārahi hoki ka āta hāpai ake i ngā putanga mō ngā uri. Ka āta whakawhanaunga atu ngā uri, ā, ka kitea hoki tō rātou whakaaro nui ki ētahi atu.

3 Te Ārahitanga me te Aro Mātai o Roto

Ka kitea te kaha me te whakaaweawe o te tumuaki hei kaiārahi, ā, ka whakatauiratia e ia te mahi ngātahi kia tupu ai te māiatanga. Kia hono atu ai te mahitahi ki te hapū, te iwi me te Rūnanga hei tautoko i a rātou ki te whakatutuki i ngā wawata mō a rātou uri. Kua whakamārotia te hononga ngaio ki ngā mātanga, te whakawhanake ngaio me ngā rautaki tino mārama ake e hāngai pū ana ki te kounga o te tautoko mō ngā uri. He aronga tōna ki te tiri i ōna mātauranga me tōna tohungatanga ki te whakatōpū mai i ngā mōhiotanga, te awhina me te ārahitanga o te hapori ki waenganui i ētahi atu. Kua pakari kē atu te māiatanga o te whānau me ngā uri hei kaiwhakatau otinga.

Kua toka kētia te aro mātai o roto, ā, ka whakamahia hei whakatau i ngā mahi tōtika. He hiranga nui tō te whakahuritao ki te wāhanga kohikohi mōhiohio. He māro te arotake e ahu mai ana i ngā whakaaturanga i kohia kia whakamōhiotia ngā matea ki ngā mātanga. Ka whakamahia ngā tirotirohanga kia kotahi tonu te aro atu, ā, te āta whakatau haere me te whakaraupapa he aha kei kō atu. Ko te ōritetanga me te āta aro turuki e whakarato ana te mātau, ā, tae noa ki te whakamātara i ngā akoranga o muri atu. Ka riro mā te poumarumaru, ngā pouako me te whānau te āta whakaaro me te āta mahi kia tiro arotahi ai ki te whakapai ake i ngā putanga mō ngā uri.

Ngā wāhanga i tāutuhia ai e te kura hei whakawhanake ake

He pai te tūnga o ngā kaiārahi o te kura me te Poumarumaru ki te hāpai i te whakawhanaketanga o te reo Māori i roto i te whānau me te hapori o te kura.

1 Context

Te Kura o Matapihi is in Mount Maunganui. The kura has been operating for over 100 years and recently affiliated to Ngā Kura ā Iwi o Aotearoa (NKAI). The Poumarumaru and kura leaders have a clear vision for uri, based on whanaungatanga, whakapapa and success with learning. Te Iwi o Ngāi- te-Rangi actively participate and support the kura and its developments.

How well do uri show that they are successful academically, physically, emotionally and socially?

Uri show they are academically socially, emotionally and physically successful.

2 Uri Outcomes

Uri are culturate, literate and numerate. There is a clear vision for uri success. Kura values are based on whanaungatanga and educational success. Ngai Te Rangi whakapapa, histories and traditions are an integral part of the curriculum. Pouako integrate iwi knowledge into literacy and numeracy programmes. Uri are encouraged to ask questions and share their ideas. Uri are successful learners.

Uri are focused on achieving excellence. Leaders and pouako have high expectations for excellence and work towards high quality outcomes. Whānau and uri are empowered to contribute their ideas and aspirations. Uri know what their learning objectives are and monitor their own progress. They receive specific feedback and work with pouako to identify their next steps in learning. Pouako use achievement information to plan programmes that respond to individual learning needs. Achievement information is shared with whānau who acknowledge and celebrate progress. Uri achieve academic success across the curriculum.

Uri are curious and creative thinkers. They work with others, take risks and extend their thinking. Uri confidently explore their local and wider worlds. Exchanges with other schools and participation in marae activities allow uri to share their knowledge and increase their understanding. Uri are enthusiastic learners.

Uri are digitally literate. Pouako plan programmes that encourage the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). Uri use these tools to access information and to connect with other indigenous people around the world. Uri ask questions, share cultural commonalities and exchange views about global matters. ICT are also used by Uri to record and monitor their progress. Uri are confident learners.

Uri have a strong sense of responsibility for the environment. Pouako have developed a strong values programme that reinforces uri contributions to the world around them. Uri understand their role as kaitiaki for the natural environment. They investigate the local marine life and examine factors that impact on the physical environment. These learning opportunities allow uri to develop deeper understandings, apply what they know and influence the behaviours of others. Uri care for their environment.

Uri display fairness, humility and confidence as leaders. The poumarumaru, kura leaders, pouako and whānau model positive relationships. Uri are encouraged to value differences. Uri have opportunities to plan, organise and lead school-wide events. Pouako assess uri as leaders, as ambassadors and as tangata whenua in a variety of settings. Whānau, community and Ngāi-te-Rangi participation in the kura is valued. They provide leadership and guidance that positively influence outcomes for uri. Uri build positive relationships and show empathy for others.

Uri are physically active and lead a healthy lifestyle. There is a school wide focus on physical activity and healthy lifestyles choices. Wellbeing is an important element of classroom programmes where uri learn techniques to manage their own behaviour. Tuakana are responsible for organising and supervising activities for teina. Uri are physically, emotionally and socially intelligent.

3 Leadership and Internal Evaluation

The tumuaki displays strong and influential leadership and models working with others to grow capability. This includes working with hapū, iwi and rūnanga to support them with their aspirations for their uri. Professional networks, professional development and clear strategy combine to focus on quality provision for uri. She is focused on sharing her knowledge and expertise to build collective intelligence, community contribution and leadership amongst others. The whānau and uri have increased confidence as decision makers.

Internal evaluation is well developed and used to support sound decision making. Reflection plays a significant part in the gathering information phase. A strong evidence based approach is gathered once professionals notice needs. They use investigation to focus attention and careful sense making to prioritise what next. Careful and consistent monitoring provides insights and often unravels additional learning. The poumarumaru, pouako and whānau take deliberate and considered action focused on improved outcomes for uri.

Kura-identified areas of development

Kura leaders and te poumarumaru are well positioned to support te reo Māori development in the kura whānau and community. The tumuaki and pouako are committed to strengthening uri competency in te reo Māori. They recognise the need for a language development strategy.

4 Te Poumarumaru assurance on legal requirements

Before the review, the board of trustees and principal completed the The Poumarumaru Assurance Statement and Self-Audit Checklists. In these documents they attested that they had taken all reasonable steps to meet their legislative obligations related to:

  • Te Poumarumaru administration

  • processes for appointing staff
  • stand-downs, suspensions, expulsions and exclusions
  • attendance.
