All Queensland state schools, including independent public schools, special schools and outdoor and environmental education centres are reviewed by the School Improvement Unit at least once every four years. Schools are generally reviewed in the year that they are due to update their four-year strategic plan. Findings and feedback from the School Improvement Unit reviews are valuable input in the process. Bald Hills State School Teaching and Learning Review will take place in Term 2 Week 8 as our current strategic plan is in its fourth year.
School reviews consider a school’s performance against nine domains:
- An explicit improvement agenda
- Analysis and discussion of data
- A culture that promotes learning
- Targeted use of school resources
- An expert teaching teams
- Systematic curriculum delivery
- Differentiated teaching and learning
- Effective pedagogical practices
- School-community partnerships
As part of the process they will interview many staff, parents and community members both with formal and informal interviews. We welcome the school review and look forward to receiving feedback.We will share the feedback with the Bald Hills school community in Term 3.
