Every 4 years, as part of the school planning, reviewing and reporting cycle, schools are designated a school or a 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.
Schools generally have a review the same year they are due to update their 4-year strategic plan.
School reviews are conducted by an SRR-appointed review team of experienced educators trained in the use of the School Improvement Tool.
The review team look at a school’s performance data and speak with a wide range of staff, students, parents and community members to get a clear picture of the school, it’s affirmations and identified areas of improvement.
At the completion of a school review, the school is given a report which details key findings and improvement strategies for the school to consider further.
