The Frankley School Localised Curriculum was developed to enhance our new school Vision.
Te Kitenga – Our Vision:
~ Courageous Caring Learner
At Frankley School we value a range of learning opportunities. We have specialist Art and Music teachers who share their expertise and passion with our tamariki. Our Year 6 children learn to surf, and groups of children enjoy yoga sessions to support their hauora(wellbeing). We love or Kapa Haka, whole school trips to Muru Raupatu Marae and beach day. Enjoy reading about our developing Localised Curriculum. We continuously challenge ourselves to engage and empower all of our learners.
We believe learners learn best through a personalised, agentic programme, with strong whānau engagement.
We recognise Te Ao Māori and developing effective relationships built on trust and respect are an integral part of improving the outcomes for our students and as such it underpins and weaves through each of the areas below. Our mahi with the Māori Achievement Collaboration has supported our journey with Te Ao Māori.
We have 6 Capabilities that drive our Frankley School Curriculum. Our children will leave Frankley School with life long skills and confidence in:
Each Capability has transition pathways to allow children to develop at their own pace. We use a personalised approach and are respectful of each learner’s progressions. The Capabilities provide consistent language for students, teachers and whānau across the school. Our Capabilities: Communication and Thinking have been developed in 2020. In 2021 we will focus on Agency and Hauora. We strive to create authentic opportunities to learn.
Our Vision, Guiding Principles and Capabilities were developed in response to the feedback from all of our stakeholders.
