KOPUTAROA SCHOOL

2012 ANNUAL PLANS


2012 ANNUAL PLAN - CURRICULUM, CLUSTER COLLABORATION AND TEACHING AS INQUIRY Link to Strategic Plan: Goal 1: To focus on high quality learning and teaching and to encourage and support the growth of Tikanga Maori. Goal 3: To sustain, grow and further encourage whanau and community partnerships within our rural environment (whanaungatanga). Goal 5: To engage in regular self-review and to monitor and evaluate areas.

Explanation: The New Zealand Curriculum sets the policy and direction for learning and teaching in New Zealand. Alongside this, the National Standards support and compliment the learning and teaching and goals of the New Zealand Curriculum. Through their Charters, schools have the opportunity to design and implement the Curriculum to best meet the needs of their children and community. We acknowledge that our children should have access to a rich, broad and motivational curriculum through high quality learning and teaching and engaging experiences. Children learn best when they can make cross-curricular connections and we endeavour to provide a balanced, enjoyable learning experience. Teaching as Inquiry is a key component of the New Zealand Curriculum focused on teacher effectiveness and the teaching and learning process. It requires teachers to review and reflect on their pedagogy and inquire into the impact of their teaching on their students. We know that this process heightens reflection and review and adds value to teaching and learning and the improved outcomes of students. Annual Aims: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Continuation of the Teaching as Inquiry Cycle to grow and develop teacher effectiveness and pedagogy. Consolidating and building on the principles of Formative Assessment/Formative Practice. Increase the number of children achieving At or Above the National Standards. Learning and Teaching that provides a broad, balanced and meaningful curriculum. Initiate and Build Cluster Collaboration to support Teaching as Inquiry and student learning.

1. Writing Target - Increasing the number of Year 7 and Year 8 children At or Above the National Standard. 2.
