How Good Is Our School? Inclusion and Equality Part 3: Promoting Race Equality. Self-Evaluation Series
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
The revised edition of "How good is our school?" (HM Inspectorate of Education, 2002) has been widely welcomed in schools and authorities. This document is one of a series of guides which builds on, but does not repeat, the advice on self-evaluation given in "How good is our school?" The introductory publication to the series, "Planning for Improvement," outlines how one can use the outcomes of self-evaluation to plan effectively for improvement. This guide can be used when one is ready to evaluate the quality of the school's approaches to tackling racism and promoting race equality, and is one of a series which deals with issues relating to "Inclusion and Equality." It builds on and updates some of the advice given within the earlier publication "A Route to Equality and Fairness" (HM Inspectors of Schools, 1999). The guide shows how one can use a cluster of quality indicators from "How good is our school?" that focus on key features with particular relevance to preparing children and young people for life in an ethnically and culturally diverse society and providing equality of opportunity. Part 2 of "How good is our school?" provides all the advice one needs about practical approaches to self-evaluation. This guide: (1) describes best practice in preparing children and young people for life in an ethnically and culturally diverse society and providing equality of opportunity, with reference to important sources of advice; (2) asks key questions derived from illustrations within the quality indicators chosen; (3) looks at how one might collect evidence from more than one source in order to provide a robust basis for evaluations; and (4) encourages one to reflect upon and weigh up the strengths and areas of improvement from observations in order to come to an overall evaluation of the quality of provision. One can then use the results of the evaluation and the evidence to plan for improvement and to report on the standards and quality of what one has found. [For "How Good Is Our School?
