KingsWay School is an integrated, non-denominational school of special Christian character that caters for students in Years 1-13. The school is structured into a Primary School (Years 1-6), Middle School (Years 7-9), Senior School (Years 10-13) and includes a satellite kura, Tau Te Arohanoa Akoranga (TTAA). While the school operates functionally as four distinct entities, KingsWay is one school and provides a seamless education for students for the duration of their schooling journey. This document seeks to align KingsWay School’s special character and unique context with the intent of the New Zealand National Curriculum published in 2007.
KingsWay School’s mission statement is: To be a Christian community of learning that nurtures young people towards their full potential as servant leaders in the kingdom of God. The vision for a KingsWay graduate is that they may be confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners who embody the Christian special character of the school. This curriculum document is a clear statement of what we deem important in education at KingsWay School. It states succinctly what each learning area is about and how learning is structured. It includes a clear set of principles on which to base curriculum and school decision making around teaching and learning. It sets out values that are to be encouraged, modelled and explored. It defines five key competencies that are critical to sustained learning and effective participation in society as disciples of Jesus. The eight learning areas are brought together through Special Character Education which reflects the school’s integrated status. Although learning areas are outlined separately to maintain their unique identity, in practice there will be an emphasis on seeking natural connections between learning areas, exploring future focussed issues and a commitment to teach Christianly.
This document replaces any previous versions of the school curriculum documents and allows teachers the scope to design future classroom practice and planning. While this document primarily references a KingsWay context, TTAA is also expected to adhere to the general intent as stated. The delivery of the curriculum will focus on teacher actions that promote learning for all students and, therefore, this document also outlines effective principles around teaching practice, assessment, resource selection and e-learning.
As curriculum design and review is an ongoing cyclic process, this third edition will be continually evaluated and formally reviewed in its entirety on a four year cycle. I trust that you will embrace the essence of this document and that you will join us as we seek to glorify God through Christian education.
