Evaluation period: March 2015 – May 2015

Summary School Self-Evaluation Report
Our school has its own context. There are 5 teachers and 73 pupils in the school. We have a number of programmes operating in the school including Reading Recovery. Our attendance levels are good. Our pupils’ behaviour is very good.
- The focus of the evaluation
We undertook a school self-evaluation of teaching and learning during the year. We evaluated the area of Literacy. We chose this because we felt that our pupils could improve their learning outcomes in this area.
This report summarises the strengths that were identified and the areas that have been prioritised for improvement.
2. Summary of school self-evaluation findings
We collected information from parents, pupils and teachers in preparing this report. We looked at how well our pupils were doing in Literacy by analysing standardised test scores. We also surveyed our parents and collected samples of our children’s work. As part of our Staff meetings throughout the year, we also discussed the area of Literacy in our school.
2.1 We found that our school has strengths in the following areas:
- The Reading Recovery programme is being run in the school.
• 75% of parents surveyed report being happy with their child’s handwriting.
• 86.7% of parents surveyed report checking their child’s English copy more than once a week and 86.7% of parents surveyed read to their child at least once a week. This shows that we have good parental support in the area of Literacy.
2.2 We have decided to prioritise the following areas for development:
Areas for development
• Grammar and punctuation.
• Use of more individualised Reading Schemes to replace current scheme.
