External School Review

As part of our continuous school improvement we will be involved in an external school review with a review panel. The purpose of external school reviews is to support schools to raise achievement, sustain high performance and provide quality assurance to build public confidence in government schools.

All government schools are externally reviewed every four years.

The focus is to evaluate school performance. Our review panel will consist of a review officer and two trained review principals. The review will occur on the 24-26th of September.

The review will highlight aspects of the school’s improvement that have been verified through the review processes as well as the improvements that we need to make in the future.

During the external school review, some students, parents, governing council members and staff will be asked to provide information to the review panel in a number of ways. These include:

  • Individual interviews
  • Group discussions (with students or staff or parents)
  • Meetings (usually governing council, staff meeting)
  • Visits into classrooms (online lessons in our context)

We appreciate your support and time in helping us with our external school review process. If you do not want your child to participate in any student group discussion, please email Susan Randall at by Friday 15th of September.
