About Te Rito

Te Rito was co-designed with the education sector so that ākonga and learners would be top of mind in everything we do.

Te Rito is owned by the sector

We recognise that local educators, leaders, whānau and iwi understand what's best for their communities and how to provide the right support for their learners and ākonga.

We are working closely with Ngā Rau Whakatupu Māori and Auraki, the two Te Rito working groups, to plan and implement the restart of Te Rito, which begins in term 2 2023.

Keeping ākonga and learner information safe

Central to the design of Te Rito is the need to keep ākonga and learner information safe and secure, get the right consents before information is added to Te Rito, and ensure ākonga and learner information is only used as intended.

Trusted information used to support learning

The information in Te Rito belongs to ākonga and learners. The Ministry does not have access to ākonga, learner, kura or school information held in Te Rito.

Te Rito uses leading privacy and security practices.
