Updated independent school review readiness tool

We have updated our readiness tool for independent school reviews. The readiness tool allows schools to self-assess compliance with the minimum standards for registration, in preparation for a review. The readiness tool:

  • explains the requirements for each standard
  • details evidence required
  • links to relevant guidelines
  • provides an opportunity to note whether you currently meet requirements or need to provide further evidence.

The updated readiness tool will help independent schools prepare for a review under the updated Guidelines to the Minimum Standards and Requirements for School Registration, which registered schools must comply with by 1 July 2019. To access the updated guidelines and readiness tool, see:

Independent school reviews opened before 1 July 2019 will be assessed against the previous guidelines. Schools should use the previous 2017 version of the readiness tool for these reviews.
