School Self-Evaluation

Circular 0039/2016 outlines timeframes and stages for school self-evaluation 2016-2020. It supersedes Circular 0039/2012 on the implementation of SSE which covered the period 2012-2016.

The DES has issued revised Guidelines to SSE replacing previous guidelines.

The DES has also produced an updated version of Looking at our School: A Quality Framework for Primary Schools, which replaces the 2003 guide to SSE Looking at Our School. Looking at Our School 2016 is designed to underpin both SSE and school inspections.
