A review of registration is to ensure that your school continues to meet the Standards for Registration and Review of Registration of schools in South Australia (The Standards)
Registration of a school is ongoing. However your school’s registration must be reviewed at least once every five years in accordance with the Education and Early Childhood Services (Registration and Standards) Variation Regulations 2017.
A review of registration of all schools will occur in one of the following ways:
1 Validation Review of Registration
This type of review is conducted by the ESB and applies to all schools registered since 2012 and schools that are in their first 18 months of operation. An additional number of established schools will also be selected to undergo this review each year. The review may relate to all the criteria in the Standards or a selection of them. The ESB will assess evidence submitted by the school and may also conduct a site visit.
2 Self-Review and Verification of meeting the Standards
Schools are required to undertake a self-review using the Standards and then confirm that all criteria in the Standards have been met. No evidence is required to be submitted for this review. The Self-Review and Verification of meeting the Standards form must be submitted to the ESB only when all criteria have been met.
Evidence Guide and Standards
The Standards for Registration and Review of Registration and the Evidence Guide for the Review of Schools are key documents to support all schools in the review of registration process.
If you are unsure of the review process for your school in 2018, contact ESB.Schools@sa.gov.au as soon as possible.
