Evidence of compliance

A registered and accredited non-government school must have in place and implement policies and procedures to monitor the compliance of each student with the requirements for eligibility for the award of the Record of School Achievement.

A registered and accredited non-government school must maintain documentation for each calendar year of the current accreditation period that provides evidence of:

  • timetables showing the allocation of time and teachers for each Year/class
  • the total number of hours allocated to each course
  • the scope and sequence of learning units/units of work mapped against the content and outcomes of the relevant NESA syllabus for each course
  • assessment policies and procedures which comply with the requirements documented on the ACE website and in NESA Official Notices. These policies should include statements of school procedures and records relating to the allocation of grades in each Year 10 course
  • confirmation that the school has policies for disability provisions in accordance with the ACE website
  • an overview of the process for reporting student achievement.

A school must also maintain, until the end of each calendar year, teaching programs for each unit of work for each Year/class that correspond to those identified in the scope and sequence of learning/units of work.

Schools must be able to demonstrate evidence of alignment between NESA syllabuses and the school's curriculum documentation including scope and sequences, teaching programs and assessment plans used by the school. In some circumstances, upon request or as part of an inspection visit, a school may need to provide student work that demonstrates alignment to the teaching programs.

A school must have resources and equipment available for providing the required KLA/courses.
