The Education Review Office (ERO) is the government department that reviews schools and early childhood services in New Zealand. An ERO education review gives an external perspective on a school’s teaching and students’ learning. The aim of a review is to help a school improve the quality of teaching and learning in the school (Education Review Office, 2014).
Dyer Street School in Lower Hutt caters for Years 1 to 6 students. Its current roll is 239, with 23% Māori and 9% Pacific. The Pacific roll is growing. The school is part of a local cluster of schools that work together to raise the achievement of students in Naenae.
The school provides an inclusive environment for students with significant or high educational needs.
Dyer Street School has a positive reporting history with ERO. This review finds that high quality practice has continued. School leaders and teachers are strongly focused on improving learning through effective teaching.
