- School registration
Find out about NESA's risk-based approach to regulation, which includes randomly inspecting schools.
NESA randomly selects 26 schools to inspect annually. To proportionally represent each schooling sector, this comprises 18 government schools, 4 individual non-government schools and 4 systemic non-government schools.
Further information about the program to inspect schools selected randomly is published at schools selected randomly for inspection.
During the inspections, schools are asked to provide a sample of the materials identified in the Evidence of Compliance sections from the relevant sections of the applicable registration manual:
