ERO Report

ERO’s reviews

The purpose of an ERO review is to give parents and the wider school community assurance about the quality of education that 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 māori students, pacific students and students with special needs. The ERO also reports on the quality of the school’s systems for sustaining and continuing improvements. The report answers four key questions about the school.

Orewa College provides education for students from Years 7 to 13 on a large, well maintained campus.

Te Ara Huarau / School Profile Report

Te Ara Huarau is the evaluation approach that the Education Review Office (ERO) is using in our school. This is a developmental approach to evaluation where ERO and our school work together over time rather than one off reviews that happened previously. Te Ara Huarau is used in most English-medium state and state-integrated schools.

ERO maintains a regular review programme to evaluate and report on the education and care of young people in the schools. Our school worked alongside ERO to write our Profile Report. This type of report will only happen once as part of our initial engagement with Te Ara Huarau. The profile report reflects our strategic goals and a shared evaluation focus one or more areas that are important to us as we work together to improve outcomes for all our learners. ERO, like us, have a strong focus on equity and excellence. Future reporting will show our progress and achievement towards meeting the goals we have set. Public reports like the Profile Report are published on ERO's website.

A board Assurance Report that shows how we are meeting regulatory and legislative Requirements has also been published.

Included in our bundle of published reports is a Provision for International Students report. CLICK HERE for reports.
