Context

Te kura o Matapihi is on the Matapihi peninsula near Mount Maunganui. It provides total immersion education for uri from Years 1-8. The kura has a growing roll with uri that whakapapa to the three Matapihi marae from the Tauranga area. Leadership, whānau and uri participate a variety of local and national cultural events. Effective internal evaluation contributes to effective decision making.

How effectively do uri show confidence and influence in society?

Uri are highly confident and influence in different ways across different contexts.

Findings

1 Uri Outcomes

Uri experience a learning environment that affirms their identity as Ngai Te Rangi. The curriculum design reinforces the aspirations of whānau, hapū and iwi. Events and places of significance to Matapihi and Tauranga moana are integral to uri learning. The local marae are an extension of the learning environment. Cultural learning for uri is enhanced by the active participation of generations of whānau including kaumatua. Local karakia, waiata, kīwaha and whakataukī enhance connections and enrich uri sense of cultural autonomy and influence. To further affirm connection to their ūkaipōtanga and turangawaewae, uri engage in a range of kaitiakitanga kaupapa. These experiences enhance their understanding and responsibility as mana whenua. Uri appear culturally autonomous and influential.

Uri learn in an environment that is stimulating. Whānau provide learning environments and experiences that promote uri efficacy and self-management. The curriculum is responsive and makes connections to the prior knowledge of uri, out of school experiences and real-life contexts. Clear learning expectations, strong pedagogy and effective teaching and learning strategies contribute to uri success. Targeted and progressive planning is rigorously evaluated to ensure its relevance and effectiveness is maintained. This includes ensuring uri are appropriately supported and extended in their learning. Pouako encourage self-belief and personal reflection in uri. Student led conferences have been established to provide opportunity for uri to articulate and demonstrate their success to their whānau. Uri show a strong sense of achievement and success.

Uri individual attributes and strengths are recognised and valued. There is a kura wide focus and priority on the holistic development of all uri. The school wide culture is caring, collaborative and inclusive. Pouako enable explorations of interests through purposeful kaupapa learning. Feedback and feed forward is used consistently. Uri learn respectfully and cooperatively together. They affirm each other, their ideas and other’s contributions. Pouako role model sharing and collaboration. Tuakana teina relationships and are strong between pouarahi, pouako and uri. Uri display physical, emotional and social intelligence.

Uri make significant contribution to the immediate and wider community. They are confident and self-driven to learn and contribute. They are role models for te reo and tikanga Maori to their whānau and others. Kaiako promote investigation and comparison of traditional and contemporary views. Digital technology is used to facilitate uri accessing knowledge and information from global contexts. Interaction with international visitors provides opportunities to extend and compare uri knowledge of others. Uri take on leadership responsibilities and make informed and responsible decisions. Uri confidently contribute.

2 Leadership and Internal Evaluation

The kura vision is aligned to iwi aspirations which is to build confident and competent leaders for the future. This includes a te reo Māori development strategy. Leadership, staff and whānau have improved their competence and confidence in te reo Māori. There is diverse knowledge and skill at the board level. Governance matters are clearly distinguished from management responsibilities. The board provides support and resourcing to the kura leadership team and staff to ensure high achievement and positive outcomes for all uri are sustained. Community and agency expertise are engaged to enhance benefits for uri. Uri are confident with a strong sense of belonging, self-efficacy and personal agency.

Internal evaluation across all areas is well established. Regular and robust discussions inform decision making. Deliberate and scheduled evaluation and subsequent analysis informs professional decisions. The board, whānau and pouako prioritise uri needs and academic excellence. Pouarahi ensure effective and responsive pedagogy supports and promotes learning. There is a distributive leadership model in place that supports building leadership capability in pouako and uri. Collaborative professional relationships have been established to provide quality provision for uri in the kura and wider Tauranga area. Pouarahi contribute to professional networks locally and nationally. They play a pivotal role in the Tauranga Moana Māori Immersion Kahui Ako to improve educational and social outcomes for uri and whānau. Ensuring seamless transition strategies into and between kura have been prioritised. Uri strive for excellence and achieve academic success.

3 Board assurance on legal requirements

Before the evaluation, the board of trustees and principal completed the ERO Te Poumarumaru Assurance Statement and Self-Audit Checklists. In these documents they attested that they had taken all reasonable steps to meet their legislative obligations related to:

  • board administration

  • curriculum

  • management of health, safety and welfare

  • personnel management

  • financial management

  • asset management.

During the evaluation, ERO checked the following items because they have a potentially high impact on student safety and wellbeing:

  • emotional safety of students (including prevention of bullying and sexual harassment)

  • physical safety of students

  • teacher registration and certification

  • processes for appointing staff

  • stand-downs, suspensions, expulsions and exclusions

  • attendance

  • compliance with the Children’s Act 2014.

4 Recommendation

ERO and the kura have developed the following recommendation:

  • The kura and whānau continue to work collaboratively to maintain high quality outcomes for uri within the kura and wider Tauranga area.

When is ERO likely to evaluate the kura again?

The next ERO evaluation of Te Kura o Matapihi will be within 4-5 years.

Ka kitea te kaha me te whakaaweawe o te tumuaki hei kaiārahi, ā, ka whakatauiratia e ia te mahi ngātahi kia tupu ai te māiatanga. Kia hono atu ai te mahitahi ki te hapū, te iwi me te Rūnanga hei tautoko i a rātou ki te whakatutuki i ngā wawata mō a rātou uri. Kua whakamārotia te hononga ngaio ki ngā mātanga, te whakawhanake ngaio me ngā rautaki tino mārama ake e hāngai pū ana ki te kounga o te tautoko mō ngā uri.

  • te haumaru aronganui o ngā ākonga (tāpiri atu ki te ārai i ngā mahi whakawetiweti me ngā mahi whakaaito)
  • te haumaru ā-tinana o ngā ākonga
  • te rēhitatanga o ngā pouako
  • ngā tukanga ki te whakatū kaimahi
  • te whakaunu, te aukati, te pana me te whakarerenga
  • te tae ā-tinana atu a ngā ākonga ki te kura.

Te Whakarāpopototanga

E tū ana Te Kura o Matapihi ki te hapori whānui o Mauao. Neke atu i te kotahi rau tau te kura e whakahaerehia ana, ā, nō nā tata tonu nei te kura i hono atu ai ki Ngā Kura ā Iwi o Aotearoa. He ākonga tākare ngā uri, ā, he pārekareka ki a rātou te whakawero ā-hinengaro. Ka kōkiri ngā uri i ō rātou ake hinengaro, ā rātou ake mātauranga hoki. Ka kitea ki ngā uri ngā pūmanawa ki te ārahi ki te kura, ki te hapori hoki o Matapihi. He pakari ngā uri, ā-tinana, ā-whatumanawa, ā-tangata tonu.

Hei ā hea Te Arotake Mātauranga arotake anō ai i te Kura?

Tērā ka whakahaeretia e Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga te arotake whai muri, i roto i te toru o ngā tau.

1 Context

Te Kura o Matapihi is in Mount Maunganui. The kura has been operating for over 100 years and recently affiliated to Ngā Kura ā Iwi o Aotearoa (NKAI). The Poumarumaru and kura leaders have a clear vision for uri, based on whanaungatanga, whakapapa and success with learning. Te Iwi o Ngāi- te-Rangi actively participate and support the kura and its developments.

How well do uri show that they are successful academically, physically, emotionally and socially?

Uri show they are academically socially, emotionally and physically successful.

2 Uri Outcomes

Uri are culturate, literate and numerate. There is a clear vision for uri success. Kura values are based on whanaungatanga and educational success. Ngai Te Rangi whakapapa, histories and traditions are an integral part of the curriculum. Pouako integrate iwi knowledge into literacy and numeracy programmes. Uri are encouraged to ask questions and share their ideas. Uri are successful learners.

Uri are focused on achieving excellence. Leaders and pouako have high expectations for excellence and work towards high quality outcomes. Whānau and uri are empowered to contribute their ideas and aspirations. Uri know what their learning objectives are and monitor their own progress. They receive specific feedback and work with pouako to identify their next steps in learning. Pouako use achievement information to plan programmes that respond to individual learning needs. Achievement information is shared with whānau who acknowledge and celebrate progress. Uri achieve academic success across the curriculum.

Uri are curious and creative thinkers. They work with others, take risks and extend their thinking. Uri confidently explore their local and wider worlds. Exchanges with other schools and participation in marae activities allow uri to share their knowledge and increase their understanding. Uri are enthusiastic learners.

Uri are digitally literate. Pouako plan programmes that encourage the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). Uri use these tools to access information and to connect with other indigenous people around the world. Uri ask questions, share cultural commonalities and exchange views about global matters. ICT are also used by Uri to record and monitor their progress. Uri are confident learners.

Uri have a strong sense of responsibility for the environment. Pouako have developed a strong values programme that reinforces uri contributions to the world around them. Uri understand their role as kaitiaki for the natural environment. They investigate the local marine life and examine factors that impact on the physical environment. These learning opportunities allow uri to develop deeper understandings, apply what they know and influence the behaviours of others. Uri care for their environment.

Uri display fairness, humility and confidence as leaders. The poumarumaru, kura leaders, pouako and whānau model positive relationships. Uri are encouraged to value differences. Uri have opportunities to plan, organise and lead school-wide events. Pouako assess uri as leaders, as ambassadors and as tangata whenua in a variety of settings. Whānau, community and Ngāi-te-Rangi participation in the kura is valued. They provide leadership and guidance that positively influence outcomes for uri. Uri build positive relationships and show empathy for others.

Uri are physically active and lead a healthy lifestyle. There is a school wide focus on physical activity and healthy lifestyles choices. Wellbeing is an important element of classroom programmes where uri learn techniques to manage their own behaviour. Tuakana are responsible for organising and supervising activities for teina. Uri are physically, emotionally and socially intelligent.

3 Leadership and Internal Evaluation

The tumuaki displays strong and influential leadership and models working with others to grow capability. This includes working with hapū, iwi and rūnanga to support them with their aspirations for their uri. Professional networks, professional development and clear strategy combine to focus on quality provision for uri. She is focused on sharing her knowledge and expertise to build collective intelligence, community contribution and leadership amongst others. The whānau and uri have increased confidence as decision makers.

Internal evaluation is well developed and used to support sound decision making. Reflection plays a significant part in the gathering information phase. A strong evidence based approach is gathered once professionals notice needs. They use investigation to focus attention and careful sense making to prioritise what next. Careful and consistent monitoring provides insights and often unravels additional learning. The poumarumaru, pouako and whānau take deliberate and considered action focused on improved outcomes for uri.

Kura-identified areas of development

Kura leaders and te poumarumaru are well positioned to support te reo Māori development in the kura whānau and community. The tumuaki and pouako are committed to strengthening uri competency in te reo Māori. They recognise the need for a language development strategy.

4 Te Poumarumaru assurance on legal requirements

Before the review, the board of trustees and principal completed the The Poumarumaru Assurance Statement and Self-Audit Checklists. In these documents they attested that they had taken all reasonable steps to meet their legislative obligations related to:

  • Te Poumarumaru administration
  • curriculum
  • management of health, safety and welfare
  • personnel management
  • financial management
  • asset management.

During the review, ERO checked the following items because they have a potentially high impact on student achievement:

  • emotional safety of students (including prevention of bullying and sexual harassment)
  • physical safety of students
  • teacher registration
  • processes for appointing staff
  • stand-downs, suspensions, expulsions and exclusions
  • attendance.
