External School Review

DateMonday 1 March, 2021 to 3 March, 2021

As part of our continuous school improvement process, Gawler and District College B-12 will be involved in an external school review with a Department for Education review panel.

The purpose of external school reviews is to support us to raise achievement, sustain high performance and provide quality assurance to build public confidence in government schools.

All government schools are externally reviewed every 3 years.

The focus of the external school review is to evaluate our college's performance. The review panel includes a review officer and trained review principals. Our college review will occur on 1st to the 3rd March 2021.

The review panel will identify aspects of our college'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 (governing council, staff meeting);
• visits into classrooms.

We appreciate everyone's support and time in helping us with this external school review process.
