The significant relationship between effective self-evaluation and school improvement can be seen as an “inwards, outwards, forwards” approach. This help our us reflect and answer the key questions which remain at the heart of self-evaluation:
– How are we doing?
– How do we know?
– What are we going to do now?
Through this approach we are continually looking inwards to analyse our work, looking outwards to find out more about what is working well for others locally and nationally and looking forwards to gauge what continuous improvement might look like in the longer term. How good is our school? supports us to look inwards to evaluate performance at every level and in using the information gathered to decide on what needs to be done to improve.
A copy of our Standards and Quality Report & Improvement Plan (SQIP) for 2020/2021 can be found by clicking here: SQIP 20-21 St David’s RC Primary and ELC Setting . We aim to be as open and transparent about our practice as we possibly can. This document highlights our strengths and areas for development.
The school also benefits from Pupil Equity Funding (PEF) which allows us to plan for and overcome barriers to learning and ensure the very best outcomes for all. A copy of our 2020/2021 PEF plan will soon be available to view. Please check back soon.
Our SQIP has been largely informed by our local neighbourhood plan. A copy of this can be found by clicking here: DalkeithWoodburnNeighbourhoodProfile June 18-28ekayy .
