    Reviews are carried out by a Tribal accredited reviewer, working with the school or setting. Activities may include observation of teaching and learning, reviewing learners’ work, talking with learners and staff, and scrutiny of evidence and data. A full and independent report is compiled and shared with the school on a confidential basis. Reviews can be carried out as part of a longer-term package of school improvement support.
