Action plans to address literacy & numeracy outcomes launched
Associate Ministers of Education Jan Tinetti, Kelvin Davis, and Aupito William Sio launched the Literacy & Communication and Maths Action Plans and the draft Action Plan for Hei Raukura Mō te Mokopuna at Mangere East Primary School today.
A strong foundation for learning
Action Plans have been released today for two strategies announced earlier this year: Hei Raukura Mō te Mokopuna (for Kaupapa Māori and Māori medium education), and the Literacy & Communication and Maths Strategy (for English-medium learning pathways). These strategies aim to improve te reo matatini, pāngarau, literacy, and numeracy outcomes for all ākonga, providing more support for the teaching and learning of those foundational skills across the learning pathway.
The action plans outline what is needed to realise the vision of these strategies over the coming years. Implementing the actions will help us make the changes required in our education system to give all ākonga the skills they need to thrive in learning and in life.
The Hei Raukura Mō te Mokopuna Draft Action Plan has been developed with the writers of Hei Raukura Mō te Mokopuna, and lays out the actions we will take to clearly identify the supports needed to help kaiako to implement and strengthen the delivery of te reo matatini and pāngarau confidently across their learning programmes. The plan is centred around mokopuna, kaiako, whānau, hapū and iwi, and how we can better support them to maximise mokopuna success.
The Literacy & Communication and Maths Action Plans lay out a pathway for the actions we will take to bring the Strategy’s vision to life from early learning through to the end of schooling.
The Action Plans make clear what curriculum changes and supports we will be working with the education community on over the coming years, to address inequities and improve literacy & communication and maths outcomes for all children and young people.
Over time, the actions will give kaiako the support, guidance, resources, tools, and professional development they need to feel confident in the teaching of literacy and communication and maths.
There are also specific actions designed to bring places of learning and whānau closer together, so that educators can better understand the needs of their ākonga, and it’ll be clear to whānau how they can best support the learning of their ākonga.
