School Self Evaluation

School self-evaluation  is a collaborative and reflective process of internal school review. During SSE, our principal, our deputy principal and our teachers, in consultation with parents and pupils, engage in reflective enquiry on the work of our school.

School self-evaluation enables our school:

  • To take the initiative in improving the quality of education that we provide for our pupils.
  • To affirm and build on what is working well.
  • To identify areas in need of development and to decide on actions that should be taken to bring about improvements in those areas.
  • To report to our school community about the strengths in the work of our school and its priorities for improvement and development.

School self-evaluation improves pupils’ learning. Experience in Ireland and in other countries shows that when teachers reflect on their own practice regularly and focus on improving teaching and learning in classrooms, they can improve the learning achieved by pupils.

Please see the January 2016 School Self-evaluation Summary below that identifies the key strengths of teaching and learning in our school, the areas that have been prioritised for improvement and the key actions that are designed to bring about the improvements in teaching and learning.
