All Queensland state schools and centres undergo a review by the Department of Education at least once every 4 years.
The reviews are conducted and supported 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
The majority of schools are designated 2 types of school reviews:
- school review
- school-led review.
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.
Please go to the
school reviews page for more information on each review type.
After the review
At the completion of either a school or school-led review, SRR provides the school with a report and executive summary, detailing or confirming key findings and improvement strategies for the school to consider as part of their next steps.
Schools share the findings from their review with their school community and incorporate any improvement strategies or recommendations into their 4-year strategic plan.
To read a validation report of the executive summary from a school review report, go to the school's website or contact the school office.
