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 will be externally reviewed every four years.
The focus of the review is to evaluate school performance. The review panel consists of a review officer and a trained review principal. The review will occur between Monday 30 July and Wednesday 1 August.
We will find out the 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.
Parents will be sent information via Parent Paperwork regarding the process and will be asked to supply permission for their child to be involved in the external school review discussions.
We appreciate your support and time in helping us with this external school review process.
