Public School Review

Public School Review


All Western Australian public schools are reviewed every three years by the Department of

Education’s Public School Accountability directorate. A review gives assurance to the local

community, the Minister for Education and Training and the Director General that a school is

operating effectively and delivering high quality education to its students. The review

acknowledges the achievements of the school and gives feedback to support the principal and

staff with their improvement planning.

The principal provides the review team with a self-assessment of the school’s performance based

on evidence gathered by the principal and staff. Information validated by the review team is

considered before and during the school visit. This forms the basis for the school review report.

The report is provided to the principal, the chair of the school board/council and the Regional

Executive Director.

school board chair); or, the Principals’ Statement of Expectations and the Funding Agreement for
