The Education Review Office (ERO) Evaluation
The ERO teams conduct all school reviews with a focus on Equity and Excellence, and accelerating achievement of students (with a specific focus on Maori students). The report notes that our school
o is well placed to meet the 2017 government target with high numbers of children achieving at or above National Standards.
o responds very effectively to children whose learning and achievement needs accelerating.
o scaffolds children’s learning through a range of rich learning experiences.
o has curriculum themes and extensive co-curricular activities that are highly responsive.
o has a high quality of teaching, with teachers and support staff working collaboratively to find new and innovative approaches to stimulate and challenge children
o has capable trustees who bring a range of experiences to their roles.
In terms of “Going Forward” the review team noted Browns Bay School is very well placed to achieve sustained equitable and excellent outcomes for all children. A high degree of coherence between all process and systems is evident, due to the effectiveness of thorough, purposeful internal and external evaluation.
