Education Review Office (ERO)

The Education Review Office (Te Tari Arotake Matauranga) evaluates and reports on the education and care of children and young people in early childhood services and schools.

An ERO review looks at how an early learning service or school 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.

Their review process works with an early learning service or school’s own evaluation processes. It also supports a culture of ongoing improvement.

Methven Primary School’s last Education Review Office (ERO) report was released in March 2020.

ERO’s Overall Judgment

On the basis of the findings of this review, ERO’s overall evaluation judgement of Methven School’s performance in achieving valued outcomes for its students is: Well placed.

Key strengths of the school

For sustained improvement and future learner success, the school can draw on existing strengths in:

  • effective and thoughtful leadership that actively seeks to innovate for improvement
  • educationally powerful partnerships that focus on engaging teachers, students and whānau in collaborative learning
  • approaches to teaching and learning that prioritise empowering students and assisting them to self-manage their learning.

Next Steps

For sustained improvement and future learner success, priorities for further development are in:

  • the analysis and scrutiny of data to identify how well the school accelerates learning for those students who need this
  • building evaluative capability and effective use of internal evaluation to determine the effectiveness of processes and practices at all levels of the school.
