Together, we’re refreshing The New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) so that schools and communities are better supported to do what they do best: create rich and responsive learning that helps every ākonga (learner) realise their goals and aspirations.  

We want to know whether this content will improve the learning experiences of ākonga. This content has been developed from the current NZC and has been refreshed through the lenses of Te Tiriti honouring and inclusive of all ākonga. We want to know if you see yourselves, your learners and/or your child reflected in the content, that the learning that matters is clear, and that it is easy to use.  

We would like feedback on the early design work of Te Mātaiaho, English and Mathematics & Statistics Learning Area. Each section will take approximately 5 minutes and you can choose to skip a section if you wish. We recommend having the content open in front of you as you progress through the survey. You can find an electronic copy of the content at 


This survey does not intend to collect any personal information which is associated with an identifiable individual. However, if any such information is provided, it will be treated in accordance with the Privacy Act 2020 and the Ministry’s general privacy statement on its website.

No individuals or schools will be named or identified in any reports written from this feedback process. The New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) will be analysing the feedback and writing a report for the Ministry of Education. Anonymised submissions will be subject to release if they are requested under the Official Information Act.
