School Self Evaluation

School self-evaluation (SSE) is a collaborative, inclusive, and reflective process of internal school review. An evidence-based approach, it involves gathering information from a range of sources, and then making judgements. All of this with a view to bring about improvements in students’ learning.

The SSE process provides a way for schools to systematically plan for, implement and monitor changes and improvements in aspects of practice that they have identified as priorities. It is a six-step process as can be seen in the image below. For more details on SSE please click here.

2024/2025 Area of Focus

Area 1 - Teaching & Learning -

Continuation of Focus from 2023/24 with the embedding of our one hour classes to improve engagement in learning through the impact of teacher feedback.

Area 2 - Wellbeing -

Last year we gathered data and highlighted two areas within Wellbeing that would we would like to focus on. The work continues on these two areas:

1. At least 90% of students will report that they could identify at least one adult in the school they would feel comfortable going to if they had a problem.

2. All 1st Year students will have signed up for an extra curricular activity or club to aid their sense of belonging in the school community.

Area 1 - Teaching & Learning -

1. Continuation of Focus from 2022/23 with the embedding of our one hour classes to improve engagement in learning and active teaching.

2. Improvements in the impact upon students from teacher feedback -that the majority of students will report that their assessments have improved, based on self-reflective feedback from assessments and specifically that the number of 5th Year students who say that they are almost always clear about the areas for improvement identified by teachers in assessment feedback will increase.
