School Self-evaluation


School Self Evaluation (SSE) is a process that schools all over the country are currently engaged in. It is a “collaborative, inclusive, and reflective process of internal school review”.

The process of School Self Evaluation involves gathering information from a range of sources about the quality of teaching and learning in our school, and then making decisions. It culminates in the development of a School Improvement Plan which sets targets for improvement in certain areas.

The guiding framework for the SSE process is a document called ‘Looking at Our School 2022, A Quality Framework for Primary Schools’. The ultimate purpose of SSE is to improve the quality of learning in our schools.

To date we have looked at: 

  • Numeracy (problem solving)
  • Literacy (writing and genre writing)
  • Wellbeing (movement initiatives & pupil voice)
  • Gaeilge (comhrá)

In 23/24 we will be looking at Learning , teaching and assessment. WE will be inviting parents to be involved through surveys and students will contribute in different ways during this time
