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.

Validation 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 in 2023

Schools that have not undergone a validation review for five years may be required to conduct an internal self-review against the Standards for registration and review of registration of schools in South Australia (the Standards). 

In 2023, South Australian schools required to carry out a self-review will receive notification by email. The self-review process contains further information to enable school principals to prepare. 

Resources

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 provide two educative tools to support voluntary compliance with the standards for registration for schools:

While use of these tools is not mandatory, schools are encouraged use these tools: to improve their understanding of and to self-check their compliance with the standards for registration.
