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.While this document primarily references a KingsWay context, Kumeū Christian School 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.
