The School and Region Reviews (SRR) branch monitors and supports school performance and improvement through the administration of school reviews.
The SRR reviews all Queensland state schools at least once every 4 years, providing feedback and support tailored to each school’s unique needs and context.
The SRR also undertakes
regional and system reviews to build the department’s capacity for evaluation and continuous improvement. Each region is reviewed once every 4 years, with a focus on the role regions play in supporting schools and early childhood education and care services.
The SRR collates and analyses all school review findings for emerging trends and areas requiring greater focus, with
research results published each term.
The SRR also delivers
training for school reviewers, principals and associate leaders in the use of the
National School Improvement Tool (NSIT). Programs provide school leaders with a deep understanding of the 9 domains of the NSIT, how these inform the school review process and how they can be used to drive their school’s improvement strategy.
State school principals who complete the training can nominate to become a peer
reviewer and participate in a school review. Individual schools or school clusters may also engage the SRR to deliver training that is tailored to their specific context.
Programs for regional and system leaders are also available in relation to regional reviews, how to support school reviews and the characteristics of effective education systems.
The SRR has successfully delivered high-quality training programs to educators in more than 20 different jurisdictions, both in Australia and abroad.
