Evaluation and Survey

You have heard about and discussed the potential of the curricula (Te Whāriki, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, and New Zealand Curriculum) to support, challenge and enhance your teaching practice and children’s learning.

Now, we also want to hear your views about the support you may need moving from thinking to practice. Please share your reflections from today’s hui using the button below. We have time in the programme at 3.50pm for you to provide this reflection.

Progress and achievement across the National Curriculum

Ensuring every student makes the progress they need to enjoy success is the focus of a new reference group and ministerial advisory group looking at progress and achievement.

To help the groups with their work, the Ministry of Education is asking anyone with an interest in education to get involved in a conversation about progress and achievement across the National Curriculum for years 1 to 10 – The New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.

Knowing how well students are achieving in literacy and numeracy, te reo matatini and pāngarau, is important. So is understanding each student’s progress, big or small, across the wider curriculum – including key capabilities for success in life, learning and work.

The Minstry of Education want to know what you think – whether you are an educator, parent, whānau member or caregiver, principal, tumuaki, school leader, iwi representative, student, or employer.

Claiming for Reliever Costs

Did your school employ a reliever for the day?

If so, your school can claim back the reliever costs for you to attend the Growing from Strong Foundations hui. For your school to claim relief costs, you'll need to:

  • ensure you've registered at the front desk at the hui
  • complete an orange reliever claim form
  • get your school to attach the Staff Utilisation and Expenditure (SUE) report that includes reliever details to cover this day
  • scan and email the form to no later than 30 June 2018
