National Standards 2017
National benchmarks for 2017 National Standards are not being published by the Ministry of Education for 2017 due to National Standards being declared optional by the current Government shortly after being elected to Parliament in October 2017.
Partnership Schools | Kura Hourua, however, are required to use and report on National Standards in order to be compliant with the contract they entered into with the Crown. That contract specifies that they are expected, as are all state schools, to report against the Better Public Service (BPS) target of at least 85% of students meeting the required target.
As with National Standards, the BPS targets were abandoned by the current Government when they cam to power in October 2017.
The attached chart therefore shows 2017 National Standards results for Kura Hourua against 2016 national figures for comparison. These national figures are for all schools, decile 1 to decile 10, noting that Kura Hourua are all classified as decile 3, and all are required by contract to have at least 75% of their students classified as ‘priority learners’ (Maori, Pasifika, decile 1-3, Special Needs).
