Leading Local Curriculum Guide series

We want all our young people to have meaningful learning experiences. Such experiences energise everyone – students, teachers, parents and whānau, and community members. Through the Education Conversation, we have heard the request for greater support to develop and review local curriculum and learning that enriches the whole child.

The Leading Local Curriculum Guide series has been developed to steer review of your curriculum, assessment, and design decisions as you strengthen your local curriculum, respond to progress, and reinforce learning partnerships with parents and whānau. 

These guides are for curriculum leaders to help with your planning and school review. You can lead discussions with all your staff or within curriculum or year level groups – whichever works for your school. We suggest you read the three guides and then decide which areas you’d like to focus on. You can complete the sections within each guide at your own pace.
