Reviews

All Queensland state schools—including independent public schools, special schools and outdoor environmental education centres—are reviewed by the Department of Education at least once every 4 years.

The reviews are conducted by experienced school principals, trained and appointed by the Education Improvement Branch (EIB).

Reviewers look at a school's performance data and other information, and talk with a range of school community members including staff, parents and students.

The review process​ is informed by the National School Improvement Tool​ (NSIT). The tool provides a framework for planning, implementing and measuring the success of school improvement strategies.

At the completion of each review, the school is given a report, which details key findings and improvement strategies for the school to consider further.

Schools share the findings with their school community. This includes posting the executive summary on their website.

Review schedule

About a quarter of Queensland state schools are reviewed each year.

Please view the review schedule​ for the latest school review dates.​​​

Types of reviews

There are 3 types of school reviews:

  • Full school reviews
  • Priority support reviews
  • Self-determined reviews

Please go to the types of reviews page for more information on each review.

After the review

At the completion of each review, the school is given a report, which details key findings and improvement strategies for the school to consider further.

Schools share the findings with their school community. This includes posting the executive summary on their website.

Schools that received a priority support review are supported by the EIB and regional office for 12 months following the review.

Between reviews

Schools are encouraged to undertake a self-assessment (PDF, 670KB) in the years between school reviews.

Self-assessments are a voluntary process, and are a great way for schools to identify the next steps in their improvement journey.
