Whole School Evaluation Report

Please see below the final report from our Whole School Evaluation – Management, Leadership and Learning which has now been published by the Department of Education.

The Board of Management of C.B.S Primary School welcomes the findings of this report. The Board welcomes its commendations and recommendations and is particularly pleased with the recognition of our highly effective transition to a co-educational school, and the acknowledgment of our school infrastructure being developed to an exceptionally high standard.

As a school that prides itself on its welcoming and caring atmosphere, it is extremely pleasing that we have been acknowledged for having a very positive and welcoming school culture. We thank our school community for affirming this view. The recognition of very high-quality support and planning for pupils with additional needs, very high-quality support for pupils’ wellbeing, very high-quality School Self-Evaluation, and the commendation of our Aistear Programme for Infants is also welcome.

Our staff and In-school Management team were commended for their commitment to implementing the school vision, and for engaging in professional development to support improvements in teaching and learning, as well for implementing a range of initiatives to support the holistic development of pupils. The Board is delighted that the hard work of our staff to continuously develop and improve our school has been recognised.

As outlined in the report, we will use the findings to inform ongoing school improvements and school self-evaluation. As a school, we remain wholly committed to maintaining and improving our high standards of teaching and learning in all curricular areas. The Board wishes to thank you, our parents and guardians, and the entire the school community for your ongoing support of our school.
