Priority support review
The School Improvement Unit (SIU) conducts a number of
priority support reviews (PDF, 495KB) each year.
They are for schools that have been identified as needing extra support to further improve student learning outcomes.
Priority support reviews are an acknowledgment of the diversity of Queensland schools and educators. They reflect a commitment to supporting every student to reach their full potential.
Priority support reviews are conducted in the same way as the SIU's other reviews, except for two distinctions:
- The reviews are led by the SIU's more experienced reviewers.
- The SIU and the region continue to support the school for 12 months after the review.

Each year, a handful of Queensland state schools undertake a
self-determined review (PDF, 711KB).
Self-determined reviews are for schools identified as having a trajectory of sustained improvement.
They are given the autonomy to organise a review specific to their needs. This includes selecting reviewers (which may be SIU reviewers, or independent consultants).
See the links to the right for some video examples of self-determined reviews.
