Education Review Office (ERO) - New Approach to reviewing schools
The Education Review Office (ERO) has shifted to a more developmental
approach to evaluation that supports each school’s improvement over
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
→ 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
→ 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.
