Internal review related to the refusal, non-renewal or cancellation of registration and/or accreditation

 

An applicant may request an internal review of a School Registration Committee recommendation or decision under the following circumstances:

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

            or

  • where the School Registration Committee, under delegation from the Authority, 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 of the Authority. The review process is undertaken by officers not involved in the initial assessment of the school's application for registration or 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 School Registration Committee's decision and reasons for the decision and the internal review report prepared by another Board Inspector not associated with the original inspection report.

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