Scoil an Chroí Ró Naofa íosa will have a Whole School Evaluation (WSE) commencing the first week in April, just after the Easter holidays. A team of inspectors from the Department of Education and Skills will visit the school during the week and will be evaluating the quality of management and the quality of teaching and learning in the school. Inspectors have already had meetings with the Board of Management, the school staff and the Parents' Association. Some children from selected classes will be asked to fill out questionnaires and there will also be a parents' questionnaire from a sample of parents. The final report will appear online on the Department's website in due course.
The school will be closed tomorrow, Friday 26 February for the General Election. The school is being used as a polling station. Children will return to school on Monday 29 February.
