New Zealand Government Education Review Office conducts a review of schools every three years. See below for the link to our 2017 ERO report.

The purpose of ERO’s reviews is to give parents and the wider school community assurance about the quality of education that schools provide and their children receive.

The BIG Evaluation Question ERO are looking to answer is:

How effectively does this school respond to Maori students whose learning and achievement need acceleration?  They have an intensive focus on PRIORITY LEARNERS.  Priority Learners are:

  • All Maori students
  • All Pasifika studens
  • All special learning needs
  • All other students at risk of not achieving the National Standards

An ERO school report answers the question “How effectively is this school’s curriculum promoting student learning - engagement, progress and achievement?”

Specifically, questions asked and answered include:

Equity and excellence
How effectively does this school respond to children whose learning and achievement need acceleration?

Accelerating achievement
How effectively does this school respond to children whose learning and achievement need acceleration?

School conditions
How effectively do the school’s curriculum and other organisational processes and practices develop and enact the school’s vision, values, goals and targets for equity and excellence?

Going forward
How well placed is the school to accelerate the achievement of all children who need it?
