Ngāti Toa School is a small primary school (Y1–6) with a roll that is 70% tangata whenua and we have an ambitious strategy for our future. We are looking for a tumuaki who can be a leader and an innovator in our school and in our community, and help put us at the forefront of public education in 21st century Aotearoa New Zealand.

We have a deep and rich tikanga with a strong emphasis on place and on values of aroha, whakawhanaungatanga, and manaakitanga. It is vitally important to our school and our families that our children grow as kaitiaki as well as academic learners and we strive for that culture in all we do.

We have wonderful children, incredibly dedicated staff, and a skilled and engaged board.

We are seeking applicants who can demonstrate:

  • High expectations of staff and students and in all areas of school life
  • Excellent and proven relationship management ability, in order to work closely with students, staff, whänau and the wider school and local community
  • The ability to embrace our unique character, values and expectations
  • In-depth knowledge and understanding of the New Zealand Curriculum including assessment and coaching of effective teaching practices
  • A high standard of management of school finances, property matters and a range of general leadership duties
  • A proven history of resilience when under pressure including delivering results in a demanding, evolving environment
  • Experience leading and coaching a range of teaching and support staff towards professional goals.

Our school is unique and is on the cusp of doing great things. Our previous principal has sown the seeds of a great future. This has given our next principal the opportunity to make real and meaningful change.
