Preparing to Give Effect to the New Zealand Curriculum (June 2010) 01/06/2010


Of the 76 percent of schools managing curriculum change well, 63 percent of the 245 primary and secondary schools were making good progress towards giving effect to The New Zealand Curriculum and a further 13 percent were already giving full effect to changes.

Of the remaining 24 percent only three percent had not yet begun to give effect to The New Zealand Curriculum. In individual classes, in some of these schools, teachers had considered aspects of some of the new processes needed such as integrating new technologies, being guided by the curriculum principles and integrating key competencies.

Considering that schools were not expected to be fully implementing The New Zealand Curriculum before February 2010, this overall finding reflects high levels of engagement with the intent and principles of the curriculum.
