Self Evaluation

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

There are different ways to serve the same Lord, and we can each do different things.

Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do.

1 Corinthians 12:   5-6

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, 2021-2022, our key priorities are to:


  1. Further develop pupil’s reading skills e.g. in KS1 application of phonics & KS2 developing further inference, understanding and vocabulary.
  2. Monitor the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on pupil attainment in English and  Maths so no pupils are adversely affected.
  3. Refine and evaluate developments within middle leadership of the school so that it continues to be effective, robust and rigorous.
