Every Queensland state school and centre undergoes a review at least once every 4 years to ensure they're delivering a quality education to students.
The majority of schools are designated one of 2 types of review—either a school review, fully conducted by the Department of Education School and Region Reviews (SRR) branch, or a school-led review which is co-conducted by the school and SRR.
A small number of schools may engage in a differentiated or place-based review type in consideration of their unique context – these reviews are conducted by the SRR in collaboration with the school community.
Community feedback is an essential part of the reviews, with staff, parents, students and the community encouraged to have their say.
School review findings are analysed for emerging trends and areas requiring greater focus, and play an important role in how the department supports school improvement.
