ASTHMA INHALERS - IMPORTANT
If your child has an inhaler, please ensure they bring it to school each day and know how to use it properly. We have an inhaler here if necessary but if a student is not carrying their own inhaler, we will always call a caregiver before administering it.
Any questions – please call the office.
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 Englishmedium 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 on 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 toward 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.
Whakatane Intermediate School is pleased to announce that we have completed the first stage of the ERO review process.
