Comprehensive Departmental Review Declares Riverside ESC an "Effective" School

In December 2019, and as part of the compliance requirements set by the WA Department of Education (DoE) for Independent Public Schools, Riverside Education Support Centre underwent a comprehensive review process involving an in-depth investigation of the school's business plan and capacity to carry out it's stated goals. The subsequent report furnished by DoE recognises the excellent work of the school.

The purpose of the independent review is to provide assurance to the school and its community, the Director General of Education and the Minister for Education on the extent to which the school has met its commitments in the Delivery and Performance Agreement (DPA) and associated Business Plan which are the required fundamental compliance documents for a Department of Education registered Independent Public School.

The Reviewers noted:

"Discussions with leaders, staff, students, parents and community members during the validation visit, enhanced the centre’s written submission and provided a comprehensive understanding of the centre’s effectiveness."

The Review Report and Departmental letter of endorsement are available here: http://riversideesc.wa.edu.au/our-school/annual-reports-and-reviews
