Strengthening local curriculum

The New Zealand Curriculum describes the learning all young people should experience no matter what school or kura they go to and the progress and expectations associated with this learning. It provides the framework for schools and kura to use in their local curriculum design.

This section supports school and curriculum leaders and professional learning and development providers with the process of curriculum design and review. It includes information, research, tools, suggested areas of focus, and inspirational stories to help schools make decisions about how to give effect to the national curriculum.

The animation below provides a useful introduction to local curriculum with some simple tips to get started.

Leading local curriculum guide series

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.
