How Well Do You Know Your School? Self-Evaluation Resourse 

What teachers have said about our self-evaluation CPD programme:

“The main thing learned – enhanced my application of the practice of self-evaluation in our teaching and learning approaches across the school and helped me to develop my own practice.”

“Sharing good practice, very reflective, gave very focused and relevant evaluations.”

“Provided a series of thoughtful questions which individually and as a group, have given me a clearer picture of practices and indicators for improvement.”

“Besides being very informative and descriptive, it was good to see that the school, as a whole, operates good practices in all aspects covered.”

“This programme broke the process down into mangeable steps and made us consider and concentrate on specific areas instead of trying to do it all at once.”

“The focused questionning meant we had to start with the positive, something that can sometimes get lost amongst all the things we know need to get better at. The questions gave examples of good practice and this helped us become much more positive in our responses.”

“Participation within this has increased staff confidence to enage in educational discussions and encoraged people to become more open and honest about how they were coping with things.”
