Pedagogy and assessment

KLP book front cover.

Successful schools are organised around learning. Their principals are knowledgeable about what works for the different students in their particular contexts and they create opportunities for professional learning communities to flourish.

National Standards and Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori

The Ministry of Education will work with the sector, parents, families, and whānau to remove National Standards and Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori. We want to focus on children’s progress and achievement, across the wider curricula, while not forgetting the importance of foundation skills of literacy and numeracy, te reo matatini and pāngarau.
