Our strategies and policies result in better education for all New Zealanders. We’re focusing on building a world-leading education system that provides all New Zealanders with the knowledge, skills and values to be successful citizens in the 21st century.
Schools are valuable, long-lived social assets. They have given access to education, and inspiration, for generations of ākonga to learn and succeed. We must sustain and enhance the quality of schools for current and future generations. This requires us to be effective stewards of school property.
The following strategies and policies outline the overarching objectives for our school property and the plans to help us achieve them.
Te Rautaki Rawa Kura: The School Property Strategy 2030 sets the long-term direction for how we will manage school property to support all schools having quality learning environments by 2030.
Te Mahere Taiao: The Environmental Action Plan for School Property sets out our vision to create an environmentally sustainable school property portfolio that benefits school communities and the environment.
The Statement of National Education and Learning Priorities (NELP) and the Tertiary Education Strategy (TES) set out the Government’s priorities for education that will ensure the success and wellbeing of all learners.
Ka Hikitia sets out how we will work with education services to achieve system shifts in education and support Māori learners and their whānau, hapū and iwi to achieve excellent and equitable outcomes and provides an organising framework for the actions we will take.
The New Zealand Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy vision is for New Zealand to be the best place in the world for children and young people. The strategy uses 6 outcomes to describe what wellbeing means for children and young people.
Having access to quality education, health and social services, housing and food, as well as feeling loved, safe and secure within your whānau, family and community are all essential to the wellbeing of every child and young person in Aotearoa.
The Carbon Neutral Government Programme (CNGP) aims to make selected government organisations carbon neutral by 2025.
