A brief outline on some of the points in the report:
"Learners have a strong sense of belonging to their school, as evident in children’s creative artwork that adds to the school community’s heritage. Children are highly connected to their school and to their learning. Strength in whānaungatanga ensures all learners and whānau feel welcomed and valued.
Children, parents and whānau who spoke with ERO feel supported through affirming learning relationships where families are included in learning processes that lead to improvement.
Children are achieving excellent educational outcomes. School performance has been sustained over time through well-focused, embedded processes and practices. This school has successfully addressed in-school disparity in educational outcomes.
ERO is likely to carry out the next review in four-to-five years."
