The curriculum is non-sexist, and non-discriminatory; it ensures that students’ identities, languages, abilities and talents are recognised and affirmed and that their learning needs are addressed.
The curriculum offers all students a broad education that makes links within and across learning areas, provides for coherent transitions, and opens up pathways to further learning.
The curriculum encourages students to look to the future by exploring such significant future-focussed issues as sustainability, citizenship, enterprise, and globalisation
The curriculum has meaning for students, connects with their wider lives, and engages the support of their families, whanau, and communities.
