Improving Outcomes for Learners through Self-Evaluation
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
This document supplements the advice given in "How good is our school?" (HGIOS)--third edition and "The Child at the Centre"--second edition which set out comprehensive quality frameworks and provide helpful advice on the process of improvement through self-evaluation. In particular, this document provides advice on the application of the three reference QIs--1.1 Improvements in performance, 2.1 Learners' experiences and 5.3 Meeting learning needs. It also provides advice on applying QI 5.9 Improvement through self-evaluation. Its purpose is to help staff in schools and pre-school centres to take a closer look at these four QIs. It has been written for pre-school centres and primary, special and secondary schools. The focus is upon QIs 1.1, 2.1 and 5.3 as they have been selected as the principal quality indicators for inspections of school and pre-school centres from 2008 in the Scottish Government's National Performance Framework (NPF). The NPF sets out 15 National Outcomes and 45 National Indicators to be used to evaluate the performance of public services in Scotland. One of the indicators relates to the inspection of schools and another relates to pre-school centres. The NPF is annexed to the Government's Concordat with COSLA, which covers those public services provided by local government. Appended are: (1) The six-point scale; and (2) The Four Capacities. (Contains 1 figure and 11 footnotes.)
