ERO Report

Since our school opened, we have had a vision to “unlock each child’s treasure trove of gifts and talent”. In July, the Education Review Office (ERO) conducted their first review of our school. An ERO Review is a rigorous procedure that provides an independent and objective insight into the health of a school. The Board saw it as an opportunity to provide feedback on how well we are doing at executing our vision. The feedback from ERO is fantastic and provides the Board, staff, parents and students with an assurance of effectiveness of the school and its success in “support[ing] all students to do the best they can.” I encourage you to read the full text, which is attached to this newsletter. As a school we are committed to excellence in education and honouring our vision. As parents, your partnership is integral to this. Thank you for your continued support in partnering with us in your child’s education. Here is a summary of key findings:

Learning

  •  “Most students are achieving at or above the National Standard in reading writing and mathematics.”
  • “Those students who require extra help…are identified and targeted for extra support.”
  • “Teachers use learning information well to…meet the learning needs of students.”

Curriculum

  • “The school has developed a curriculum to support all students to do the best they can.”
  • “The school curriculum has a strong focus on teaching and learning, and promoting Christian values.”

Sustainable Performance

  •  “The board has developed useful systems for managing school operations and sustaining and improving performance.”
  • “Trustees…show a sound understanding of their roles…they receive regular information about students achievement.”

Conclusion

  • “Students learn in supportive, settled classrooms. Their interests are extended through rich learning experiences. Their learning is closely monitored and supported. The leaders and staff of this new school have created a culture and curriculum that reflects Christian values and meets the expectations for learning of its parent community.”

Our first ERO review affirms “rich learning experiences”
