Self Evaluation

Barrowby CE Primary School’s Self Evaluation is a robust and rigorous process, reflecting all elements of the school’s aims, values and beliefs.

As a school, we strive for excellence and continually seek to evaluate our effectiveness through:

  • Areas for development, identified at the previous Ofsted Inspection;
  • Effectiveness of Early Years;
  • Effectiveness of Leadership & Management;
  • Outcomes for Pupils;
  • Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare;
  • Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment; and
  • Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development.

Our self-evaluation process supports the Leadership & Management, of our school, to celebrate our strengths as well as highlight the areas for whole school development.  This year, 2017-2018, our key priorities are to:


  1. Embed the changes to teaching Reading, Writing and Maths so that even more pupils achieve the expected standard, in all areas.
  2. Embed recent revisions to the teaching and learning of Mathematics and deepen further the use of Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling within written work.
  3. Liaise with and further deepen the opportunities the GRACE Schools collaboration provides for the benefit of all.
