Aotearoa has a national curriculum that guides what your child learns at school. Your child will develop a range of values and key competencies, or capabilities, that they need to succeed in life. These are all woven into the teaching of learning areas, or subjects.

The National Curriculum is the term used to refer to Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. These set the direction for student learning, and guide schools and kura as they design and implement a curriculum that meets the needs of their students.

There is a big focus on reading, writing and maths in the primary years, as these are really important foundation skills that everyone needs in order to be able to do well in life. Children need strong reading, writing and maths skills to progress through the levels of the National Curriculum and be able to achieve NCEA Level 2 or above at secondary school.

Te Marautanga o Aotearoa  

The curriculum for Te Kura o Te Teko is a compilation of material built of discussion, thoughts, dreams, aspirations and national guidelines, for the teaching and learning of Ngā Tamariki o Te Kura o Te Teko. It should be reviewed regularly by parents, whānau, kaiako, school management and governors to ensure that contents are consistent and appropriate for student use and community contexts. It should serve to assist in the development and creation of future Ngāti Awa ki Rangitaiki leaders, culture and society; without which, the very core of our Ngāti Awa ki Rangitaikitanga will be affected. 

It is hoped that in reviewing this document, some ethical and cultural questions be pondered; 

What do I want my child to look, behave and act like?
What are the skills and attributes I wish my child to have? 
What principles and philosophies are important to me, as a member of my society? 
As a member of our hapū, what knowledge should my child have when working on the marae? 
These questions are quite relevant in all Māori society; the difference will be the way in which we respond to them.
