School Self-Evaluation

School self-evaluation (SSE) is a collaborative, inclusive, reflective process of internal school review. The Framework for SSE (below) sets out a six-step, iterative process of self-evaluation in schools.  

To engage with the SSE process, the staff at Brannoxtown CNS began by asking the following questions:  

How well are we doing? How do we know? How can we find out more? What are our strengths and areas for improvement? How can we improve?

We identified the Wellbeing as the focus of our SSE for the 2022/2023 school year.
