This is carried out four-to-five years after the previous ERO review.
Te Manakotanga - Enrichment Evaluation will be carried out where the whānau has highly effective self review, the kura is high performing and students attain high levels of achievement. ERO will provide an external evaluation that complements the internal self review of the kura. Leadership will also be considered as a contributor to the effectiveness of these kura.
ERO offers the kura whānau options for how their evaluation will be designed. Decisions are supported by a range of alternative exemplars.

Based on the option chosen, whānau can then negotiate the time frame with ERO (which will be subject to availability of ERO resources).
This type of evaluation focuses on providing information for influence and enhancement in the operation of the kura. Te Manakotanga follows a process similar to the other ERO evaluations and is informed and guided by ERO standard procedures.
ERO is aware that there is limited national information available about indigenous education. Where ERO reviews identify strong models of success in kura, it may also be possible to provide a national evaluation report that captures these successes for others, in order to share this information nationally and internationally.
Below are some of the review options available to kura whānau.

The review option selected may also influence the time taken and the timeframe. As they negotiate with the review coordinator, the whānau should be clear about what they want, for what purpose and the most likely impact it may have on the students and whānau.
Negotiating the time will also allow flexibility for the review coordinator to guide this process to best outcomes.
Throughout Te Manakotanga evaluation there are three distinct review process phases - Whanaungatanga, Whakaaetanga and Whakataunga. These are the formal stages of the process and involve interactions, communication, investigation, collection and collation, analysis, synthesis, decision‑making, recommendations and reporting.
