The Department of Education and Skills requires each school to engage in the School Self Evaluation (SSE) process.
Schools are also required to devise a school improvement plan (SIP) that contains a summary of the areas for improvement identified as part of the self evaluation process.
The SIP should identify
- targets for improvement (with a focus on learner outcomes),
- actions required to achieve the targets (with reference to those who are responsible for taking actions),
- a statement of how the school will check if the targets have been achieved and
- a timeframe for achievement of the targets.
The Board of Management is responsible for ensuring that a brief summary of the SSE and SIP are provided to the whole school community.
