School Reports

The School Improvement and Accountability policy requires that schools publish annually a School Report that describes the school’s performance.  There is no prescribed format for the School Report, though it should be succinct, prepared with a public audience in mind and include at least the minimum requirements listed below.

The School Report is intended to give parents and other members of the community a clear sense of how students in the school are progressing and what is being done to maximise student achievement.

While protecting the identity of individual students, the School Report must account directly and explicitly for the achievements of all students, but also for those who receive specific funding due to social background, Aboriginality, disability and/or English as an additional language; and students participating in targeted initiative programs.

The School Report must comply with all legislative requirements and any formal agreements between governments.

The School Report must address at least the following minimum requirements:

  • Progress on identified priorities
  • Contextulalised information about student achievement
  • Annual budget and accounts
  • Parent, student and teacher satisfaction

Examples illustrating a range of effective ways of reporting these minimum requirements follow.  A School Report checklist is also available to assist in the preparation of your School Report.
