The New Zealand Curriculum sets out a vision for all of our young people to become confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learners.
The curriculum resources on this site are developed with this vision and New Zealand's priority learners in mind.
Priority learners are groups of students who have been identified as historically not experiencing success in the New Zealand schooling system. These include many Māori and Pacific learners, those from low socio-economic backgrounds, and students with special education needs.
