ERO Review 2022
We are looking forward to working alongside them over the next 3 years.
ERO have provided the following information for our community:
The Education Review Office (ERO) has shifted to a more developmental approach to evaluation that supports each school’s improvement over time. Key features of the new approach, Te Ara Huarau, are that ERO will:
→ work with all schools in an ongoing way rather than as a one-off event
→ connect with each school’s strategic planning and reporting cycle as part of their improvement journey
→ work in partnership with schools, collaborating in support of equitable and excellent outcomes for all learners
As a result, each school will:
→ have a dedicated ERO Evaluation Partner who works alongside the school
→ have a different experience depending on needs, strengths, and their school’s specific evaluation focus
→ be on a three-year evaluation cycle
What will public reporting on ERO’s website look like?
As schools’ transition into the approach, ERO will work with schools to publish a one-off Profile Report. This will focus on the strategic goals schools have in place to improve learner outcomes and what the school is seeking to achieve through the evaluation.
Within a three year cycle all schools will then have a Te Ara Huarau | School Evaluation Report. This report includes information about the school’s improvement journey, what the school has achieved for learners and their future priorities.
All schools will receive a Board Assurance with Regulatory and Legislative Requirements Report about their board’s attestation to meeting those requirements. Provision for International Students and Hostel Reports will be published where applicable.
Progress Reports - These reports are not published on ERO’s website. Progress reports will provide specific information for specific audiences such as your board, the community or the Ministry of Education.
