School Self Evaluation
Introduction to the self evaluation process
What is School self-evaluation:
What is School self-evaluation (SSE) is a collaborative, reflective process of internal school review.
It provides teachers with a means of systematically looking at how they teach and how pupils learn and helps schools and teachers to improve outcomes for learners.
Previous experience of SSE
Our school has had two very successful iterations of the School Self-Evaluation (SSE) process:
The first supported Literacy, with a particular focus on developing comprehension strategies.
The second supported Numeracy, with a particular focus on problem solving.
Board of Management review
At a meeting of the Board of Management in June, 2018, the school principal gave a briefing on the background to SSE and our previous experiences of the process. It was noted by the principal that the board had been very supportive of the previous iterations of SSE. The principal informed the board that the school would be re-engaging with the SSE process in the 2018/19 school-year. The board expressed their full support for this engagement and asked to be kept informed in relation to how the process unfolds.
School Self Evaluation Report and School Improvement Plan (SIP)
On foot of this process, a School Self Evaluation Report and School Improvement plan was drawn up by the school and presented to the board.
It spans the period from 2019 to 2020.
