All Queensland state schools and 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
School and Region Reviews (SRR) branch.
Reviewers look at a school's performance data and other evidence, and talk with a range of school community members including staff, parents and students.
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 2 types of school reviews:
- school review
- school-led review.
Please go to the
school reviews page for more information on each review type.
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 and incorporate any improvement strategies into their 4-year strategic plan.
To read the executive summary from a school review report, go to the school's website or contact the school office.
Schools are encouraged to undertake a
self-assessment 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.
