The purpose of our KORU Values behaviour support plan is to create a safe and supportive environment within our school community. This will provide a framework from which to build positive and respectful relationships, encouraging students to reach their potential.
Through modelling, teaching, recognising and rewarding positive behaviours, an empowering environment is created. This enables the school community to remain focused on developing KORU Kids.
KORU Values at KKPS will provide an effective, efficient and relevant framework that:
- is evidence-based using measurable academic and social achievement indicators i.e. data collection and collation around behaviours
- is founded on contributions from all stakeholders (whānau, students, staff, and community)
- is culturally responsive
- is visible – an integral part of the school’s daily operation
- promotes and maintains a safe learning culture and environment.
Each child now has a copy of Tāku Hīkoi, which is presented as a Google Slide. This digital file will follow them through the school. It is a record of achievements in all areas; KORU values, Academic, Sporting, Cultural and Service to the School. As your child achieves milestones on their journey towards the KKPS Graduate Profile, they will earn Digital Badges. Click here to view example of digital profile.
KORU slips are awarded to all tamariki who demonstrate the KORU Values as outlined in the KORU Expectations Matrix. KORU slips, certifi
cates and KORU bands are other ways we acknowledge KORU behaviours. We encourage and support whanau to reward the KORU behaviours at home.
KORU Values and Distance Learning
Children are encouraged to show KORU behaviours even when engaged in distance learning. Children are able to earn and be awarded Virtual KORU slips. Contact your child’s teacher and let them know about the amazing Koru behaviours that you see at home. Check out the KORU matrix click on image to enlarge.
