ERO Report

The staff and board of trustees are very proud of our most recent Education Review Office (ERO) report, which was released in April 2023. The hard work of all involved in our children’s learning is reflected in this document, and our successes and achievements have been recognised.


The school can draw from the following strengths to support it in its goal to evaluate the impact of the school’s local curriculum through extending current evaluation knowledge and practices.  

  • The effective teaching and learning practices that are responsive to all learners’ needs and accelerate progress for those students who need this.  

  • Leaders and teachers are improvement focused and consistently reflective in their practice to adapt to the changing needs of learners.  

  • The collaborative way in which staff work together to support learners and their whānau.  

  • The ways in which the school shows it commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, Te Ao and Mātauranga Māori to support learners’ language, culture and identity.  

Where to next?

Moving forward, the school will prioritise:

  • characterising its local curriculum to reflect its vision, values, cultural narrative, aspirations of tamariki, whānau and current national curriculum changes   

  • clarifying key baseline information that will be used to identify where the school is at with respect to their local curriculum development  

  • developing and trialing an evaluation approach that can used school wide.
