Evaluating school performance tools and approaches : putting self-evaluation in place (English)

School self-evaluation lays the groundwork and opens doors to self-driven school improvement. This booklet provides insights in to school self-evaluation and offers a number of tools to conduct self-evaluation. Self-evaluation provides schools with the opportunity to listen to teachers, parents, and pupils: to gain their views about what the school is, and what it could be, and to use that information to make changes. There are seven important steps to the self-evaluating school: a) promote a learning climate; b) identify the green shoots of growth; c) identify the barriers to change; d) share leadership; e) create intelligence from within; f) use 'critical' friends; and g) build resilient networks. In developing school self-evaluation, it takes time to build trust and a shared culture. It may provoke some anxiety and resistance at the outset. But in general it creates energy rather than dissipates it.
