School Self-Evaluation (S.S.E.)
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.
During school self-evaluation the principal, deputy principal
and teachers, under the direction of the board of management and patron,
and in consultation with parents and students, engage in reflective enquiry
on the work of the school.
School self-evaluation is vital for school improvement and development.
School self-evaluation enables schools:
• To take the initiative in improving the quality of education that they provide to their students
• 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 the school community about the strengths in the work of the school and its priorities for improvement and development.
