The purpose of ERO’s reviews 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 Maori students, Pacific students and students with special needs.
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.
The Orewa Beach School Board of Trustees, in partnership with staff, parents and students, strives to promote equity and high quality educational programmes within a safe and nurturing environment so that children become successful.
This Strategic Plan sets out the Board of Trustees key goals and direction over the next four years. Our Strategic Planning incorporates the new ERO School Evaluation Indicators, which have been designed to focus schools on the things that matter most in improving student outcomes.
The Orewa Beach Board of Trustees over the next four years is committed to the following broad goals:
Student Achievement: To challenge and inspire our students to be excited about their learning, resulting in enthusiastic, connected, actively involved and confident learners.
Maori Achievement: To foster procedures and practices that reflect New Zealand’s cultural diversity and in consultation with the school’s Maori community, develop plans and targets for improving the achievement of Maori students.
Our Students: To provide students with a wide range of experiences that enable them to develop qualities that are important for their future.
Teaching Practice: To further develop a collaborative, reflective professional learning community, enabling teachers to support each other as learners and refine teaching practice.
Community Involvement: To enhance positive community relationships, a sense of partnership and high levels of parent involvement, while maintaining our reputation as a family-friendly and welcoming school.
Activities of the Board: To ensure student learning, progress, achievement and well-being is at the centre of all decisions, actions and activities.
