The NZC document states (Pg 44):

Each board of trustees, through the principal and staff, is required to implement its curriculum in accordance with the priorities set out in the National Education Goals and the National Administration Guidelines.

Information on regulations

The requirements of The NZC give schools the flexibility they need to make decisions and own their curriculum. They allow schools to design a curriculum that addresses the needs of their students and community.

Parents and whānau should be given opportunities to engage in clarifying values to be emphasised at home and school. Students need be engaged in developing criteria for their self-management competency.

Active engagement by those who share interest in student learning and achievement can help to strengthen the validity and impact of a school’s curriculum.

There are two essential references to requirements:
