Refusal, non-renewal or cancellation of registration and/or accreditation

A school that is a member of a system of non-government schools may request an internal review of a Registration Committee of the Authority's recommendation or decision under the following circumstances:

  • where the Registration Committee, under delegation from the Board, has decided to recommend to the Minister that the registration of a non-government school be refused, not be renewed or be cancelled

or

  • where the Registration Committee, under delegation from the Board, has decided not to accredit a school, not to renew the accreditation of a school or to cancel a school's accreditation.

The outcome of an internal review is determined by the full Board. The review process is undertaken by officers from NESA not involved in the initial assessment of the school's application for registration and accreditation. The documentation considered by the review includes that submitted by the school proprietor and/or principal (or equivalent) previously and any additional documentation that the applicant wishes to have considered, the Registration Committee decision and reasons for that decision and the internal review report prepared by another Inspector not associated with the original inspection report.

If the internal review supports the Registration Committee's original recommendation and/or decision, the member school may appeal to the Tribunal against the recommendation and/or decision.
