Our School - External Validation 2018

External validation provides an opportunity for schools to discuss their judgements about the school’s practice – and the evidence that underpins them – with a panel of peers.

Each year approximately 20% of schools are selected as a representative sample across the Operational Directorates.

All schools are required to participate in an external validation of the evidence of their school’s assessment of progress every five years. An independent panel comprising of a Principal, School Leadership (PSL) and a peer principal considers the school’s evidence using the standards articulated in the School Excellence Framework (SEF).


In 2018 we completed our school External Validation before a panel, after submitting seven sets of 'evidence' to demonstrate our expertise in the following areas:
