The purpose of an ERO review
An ERO review looks at how a reaches positive learning outcomes – knowledge, skills, attitude and habits – for all children and young people. They are interested in what’s working well and where improvements can be made.
ERO’s review process works with a school’s own evaluation processes. It also supports a culture of ongoing improvement.
Why they make reports public
Once ERO’s review process is complete and the early childhood service or school has had a chance to take in and discuss the results, a final report is published on the ERO website (http://www.ero.govt.nz).
ERO do this because they want parents, whānau, families and the wider community to know about the teaching and learning at early childhood services and schools.
Making the reports easily accessible invites parents to take an interest and ask questions. Parent involvement plays a big part in the educational success of a child.
