Education Review Office
Education Review Office gives the thumbs up…...

Summary of Findings
We have received a very good ERO report…. A “thumbs up”.
The purpose of ERO’s review is to give parents and the wider school community assurance of the quality of education that the schools provide and their children receive.
An ERO school report answers the question “How effectively is this school’s curriculum promoting student learning - engagement, progress and achievement?” Under that overarching question ERO reports on the quality of education and learning outcomes for children and for specific groups of children including Maori students, Pacific students and students with special needs. ERO also reports on the quality of the school’s systems for sustaining and continuing improvements.
