ERO reviews schools and early childhood education services every three years on average, and publishes national reports on current education practice.
The focus of the report is to give the public and the local community a report on the performance of education centres.
The following are some key comments about the school from the ERO report:
- “…the school has enhanced Māori and Pacific student engagement and developed focus groups to engage with its community and promote parent partnerships. The school has documented actions taken that focus on Māori children’s achievement and wellbeing.”
- “There is a clear focus on children’s wellbeing that is increasingly supported by the school’s involvement with PB4L. Active collaboration with the kohanga reo is promoting the wellbeing and cultural identity of Māori children.”
- “The value of self review to inform improvement is recognised. The recent Māori Achievement Plan outlines actions the school has taken as teachers have focused on Māori children’s wellbeing and achievement. It identifies conditions needed for Māori children to meet with success. Consistency of practice to support student wellbeing is evident.”
- “Teachers work collaboratively. They are using a coaching model as they share and inquire into strategies they are using to raise the achievement of most at risk students.”
- “The Māori Achievement Plan includes strategies to improve student achievement in literacy and mathematics. The impact of these actions will need to be closely tracked and carefully evaluated.”
