A review of registration is undertaken in accordance with the Standards for registration and review of registration of schools in South Australia (the Standards). It is an ongoing obligation of all registered schools to meet all standards. A school’s registration must be reviewed at least once every five years. A newly registered school will be reviewed within the first 18 months of operation. The Education Standards Board must give at least 21 days notice of a proposed review.
This type of review is conducted by the Education Standards Board and applies to:
- all schools in their first 18 months of operation.
- a representative sample of established schools randomly selected each year.
Self-review and verification
A self-review and verification of meeting the Standards may occur once in a five-year period of registration. Schools are required to conduct an internal self-review against the Standards for registration and review of registration of schools in South Australia (the Standards). The principal then verifies that all standards are being met.
The Standards for registration and review of registration of schools in South Australia and the Evidence guide to using the Standards for review of registration are key documents to support all schools in the review of registration process.
We also have a self-review tool to support schools in ensuring all Standards are being met. It's entirely optional whether you use the tool. Nothing needs to be submitted to us. It's a tool for schools to use if they wish.
