ERO says Perry Rush's school must do better

I note that ERO make the following recommendations (i.e. you are not doing this and you had better do it or we will bring the hammer down on you) for Perry Rush’s Island Bay School  – available here

“6.1 The principal and leadership team continue to build teachers’ capability to assess student understanding against shared criteria to enable effective judgement of achievement, through the inquiry model, related to health, social studies, science and aspects of technology, and to sharpen feedback and feedforward to students.

6.2 The leadership team and staff continue to review and refine the school’s approach to integrated inquiry to ensure appropriate levels of challenge for all students.

6.3 The board and staff develop guidelines for self review that aim to extend evaluative capacity, and include quality indicators and student voice in curriculum self review.”

It is clear from 6.1 that the principal and his teachers have not got the capability to assess student understanding and yet here they are telling the world that the government should piss off when it wants his school to reach some kind of standard. His school is failing to meet standards already, no wonder he opposes compulsory standards.

I think Anne Tolley should seriously look at putting a commissioner into at least Island Bay School and Balmoral School, then we will see what Perry Rush has to say about “hot air claims” from the ministry about commssioners and whether it is all “bluster” of not.
