Kua mahi ngātahi Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga, ngā whānau, ngā kaiārahi, me ngā hapori ki te whakatakoto i ngā tirohanga aromātai e whai wāhi nui ai ki te hāpai i ngā whakapaitanga, ki te tautuhi i te ahu whakamua, ā, ki te whakapakari ake hoki i te āheinga ki te aromātai.

2 Te Horopaki

E tū whakateraki ana Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Māngātuna i Uawa, ki te Tai Rāwhiti. E whakarato ana i te mātauranga rumaki reo Māori ki ngā uri o ngā tau 0 ki te 8. Nō nā tata nei te kura i whakawhiti ai, mai i tētahi kura o Te Aho Matua ki tētahi kura ā-iwi. Nō te hapori tonu nei te nuinga o ngā uri me ngā kaiako.

3 Te Aronga o te Aromātai

He pēhea rawa te whai tukuihotanga, te whakaaweawe hoki o ngā uri?

4 Ngā Whakaaturanga

Kei te kaha hāpai te taiao o ngā uri i tā rātou ako i ō rātou tuakiri. Ka whai wāhi atu rātou ki ngā hōtaka o te kura whānui e whai pānga ana ki ngā tikanga me ngā kawa o ngā hapū me ngā iwi o Te Aitanga-a-Hauiti me Māngātuna. Ka rumakina rātou ki te taiao o te kura e kawe ana i ngā ingoa o ngā tūpuna rongonui me ngā pouwhenua. Hokihoki atu ai rātou ki ngā marae o te takiwā, hei hāpai i tā rātou ako, i tō rātou whai māramatanga ā-ahurea hoki ki tō rātou tuakiri ake. Ka ako rātou i ngā waiata tuku iho me ngā waiata hou o tō rātou takiwā. Ka whakapuaki ngā mema o te whānau i ō rātou ake pūkenga me ō rātou ake mōhiotanga. Ka whai wāhi atu, ka ārahi hoki ngā uri i ngā tikanga mā ngā huarahi ā-ahurea e whai pūtake ana.

E ākina ana te whakawhanaungatanga o ngā uri ki ētahi atu. Ka ako ngātahi, ā, ki te ako hoki rātou ki te taha o ētahi atu. I ngā wā katoa, e whakatauira ana ngā kaiako i te whanonga pai, i te whakaute, ā, i te ngākau aroha hoki ki ngā uri, ā, ki waenga hoki i a rātou anō.

1 Introduction

The Education Review Office, whānau, leaders and communities have collaborated to provide evaluation insights that foster improvement, identify progress and build evaluation capability.

2 Context

Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Māngātuna is located north of Tolaga Bay on the East Coast. It provides Māori medium education for Years 0 to 8 uri. It has recently transitioned a Te Aho Matua kura to become a kura-ā-iwi. The majority of uri and kaiako are from the local area.

3 Evaluation Focus

How well are uri culturally autonomous and influential?

Uri confidently participate in cultural activities and events.

4 Findings

Uri experience a supportive environment for learning their identity. They participate in kura-wide programmes that include tīkanga and kawa specific to Te Aitanga-ā-Hauiti and Māngātuna iwi and hapū. They are immersed in a kura environment that carries the names of prominent ancestors and landmarks. Frequent visits to local marae support their cultural learning and understanding about their own identity. They learn traditional and contemporary local waiata. Whānau members share their own skills and knowledge. Uri participate in and lead tīkanga in a culturally meaningful way.

Uri are encouraged to relate positively with others. They learn co-operatively with and alongside each other. Kaiako consistently role model positive behaviour, respect and empathy with uri and each other. Whānau, kaiako are implementing a kura-wide values programme underpinned by whakapapa and local relationships and interactions. Uri display a strong sense of belonging to kura, whānau and their community.

There are clear processes to guide new trustees to understand their roles and responsibilities. Trustees are engaged in ongoing learning to build their confidence and capability to govern. The board’s strategic plan and goals link to uri targets for achievement. These are based on achievement data trends. The goals also include kura-wide professional learning and development targeted to those uri requiring extra support.

It is timely for the kura to increase its monitoring and reporting against the board’s goals and targets for raising uri achievement. This would involve more focused evaluations of kura wide strategies for teaching and learning, and more frequent monitoring and reporting of uri receiving additional support.

5 Assurance on Legal Requirement

Actions for Compliance

Before the evaluation, the whānau and Tumuaki completed the ERO Whānau 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 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.

6 Recommendations

ERO and the kura board developed the following recommendations to support the kura focus for increasing positive outcomes for uri:

  • strengthen use of internal evaluation across the kura
  • monitor and report on progress made against the strategic goals and kura initiatives for development.

1 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Mangatuna, ki Mangatuna, ki te raki o Uawa i te Tai Rāwhiti o Te Ika-a-Māui.

Ka whakatakoto te poari i ngā taumata e pā ana ki ngā paetae ākonga, hei whakatairanga ake i ngā paetae ākonga i roto i te tuhituhi me te pānui. Arotake ai rātou i ia te wā te ahu whakamua ki te whakatutuki i ā rātou taumata, ā, ka whakamahi hoki i ngā paetae ākonga hei tātari i ngā taumata whakawhanaketanga ka whāia tonuhia e rātou.

Ka tino tautokona ngā ākonga kāhore e eke ana ki te taumata e tika ana, kia ahu whakamua ai, kia whanake ai, ā, kia wheako hoki ai rātou i te angitu. He tino hōtaka o ia rā tā aua ākonga, ā, ka tautoko takitahi hei hāpai i te kōkiritanga o ā rātou whakatutukitanga i roto i te reo tuhituhi me te pānui. Ka whai wāhi atu ngā ākonga ki ngā taumahi e whai pūtake ana, e hāngai pū ana hoki, ā, e whakatutuki ana anō hoki i ō rātou matea ako.

Ngā Iwi

Ka kitea te manawa whakahī o ngā ākonga mō tō rātou whānau, tō rātou hapū, me tō rātou iwi. E whakawhanake ana te hōhonutanga o ngā mōhiotanga o ngā ākonga mō tō rātou hapori o Mangatuna, tō rātou tupuna a Hauiti, me ngā hapū, ngā iwi hoki o tō rātou rohe. Ko te ako i ngā tino tūpuna, te kawa, te takiwā nei, ngā iwi me ngā hapū, tētahi kaupapa rautaki matua o ngā akoranga. Kua āta whakatakotohia tēnei āhuatanga ki te tūtohinga, ā, he tino aronga o roto e pā ana ki te whakatairanga ake o te whakaako me te ako o aua āhuatanga, mā ngā uaratanga matua me ngā tuhinga rautaki e whakamahere ana i ngā kaupapa matua hei ako.

E mōhiotia ana, e kōrerohia ana hoki e ngā ākonga ō rātou whānau, ō rātou hapū, me ō rātou iwi.

Ka wheako ngā ākonga i ngā hōtaka akoranga whakaongaonga e hāpai ana ki te whakapūmau i ngā akoranga e pā ana ki a Ngāti Porou, ki a Hauiti, ā, ki Mangatuna hoki.

Ka whai hua te noho angitu o ngā ākonga i roto i ngā akoranga e pā ana ki tō rātou ake taiao tonu, me ngā hōhonutanga o tō rātou ao Māori me te ao whānui.

Āhuatanga Ako

He māia te ako a ngā ākonga. Ka whakaratohia ki ngā ākonga ngā hōtaka akoranga me ngā wheako e āta whakawero tōtika ana i a rātou.

He pai tā rātou mahi ngātahi, me te whakamahi i ō rātou ake pūkenga, i ngā pūkenga hoki o te katoa, hei whakarato i ngā wheako akoranga o te kounga pai. Ka akiaki ngā kaiako i ngā ākonga ki te whakamahi i te aromatawai whaiaro, hei tāutu i tā rātou noho rite ki te whakatīmata i te taumata akoranga ka whai ake. E mōhio ana ngā ākonga ki te āhua o ā rātou paetae, ā, ka āta mahi rātou ki te ahu whakamua ki te taumata ka whai ake. E hāpaitia ana ngā ākonga kia ako pakirehua, ā, ka whai hua tēnei ki te whakatau i te aronga o ngā akoranga. Ka aro nui ngā ākonga ki ngā mahi, ā, ka whai wāhi atu ki ngā akoranga. He pārekareka ki ngā ākonga te ako, ā, e whakaongaongatia ana kia ako rātou mā te whakaratonga o ngā taumahi ako e āta whakawero mārika ana i a rātou.
