The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services.
ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.
What ERO does
ERO carries out several different types of reviews and evaluations – education reviews, homeschool reviews, cluster reviews of education institutions and services, contract evaluations and national evaluations on education topics.
Education reviews are reports to the school board, managers of early childhood education services and the Government on the quality of education provided for children and students in individual centres and schools.
Schools and early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self review processes and use of its assessment information.
