Participating Schools

Pilot Schools

We invited 75 schools to work with us in a research and development model to enable feedback and progression of a bespoke approach to evaluation.

Sector stakeholder groups are working with us to provide guidance.

Schools and ERO evaluation partners are providing feedback to strengthen the approach.

Building relationships through engagement and consultation with the sector, and focusing on how best to make the model work to provide successful outcomes for children, are key features of the new evaluation model.


Term 1 and 2 2021

In Term 1 and 2 2021, we welcomed more schools into the new evaluation approach.

ERO’s approach will continue to be iterative as all schools are introduced to the new Operating Model, allowing us to additionally gain wider and real-time feedback from all schools and our evaluators.

The feedback from the schools and ERO evaluation partner will contribute to the development of the model.
