Coláiste Chríost Rí – Whole School Evaluation: Management, Leadership and Learning 2023

Our school was subject to a Department of Education Whole-School Evaluation – Management, Leadership and Learning Assessment in recent months. This assessment reports on the quality of teaching and learning and on the quality of management and leadership in a school. It affirms good practice and makes recommendations, where appropriate, to aid the further development of educational provision in the school. 

During this inspection, the inspectors evaluated and reported under the following headings:
1. Quality of school leadership and management
2. Quality of teaching and learning
3. Quality of support for students’ wellbeing

We are proud of the subsequent report results and findings which are summarised here: 

  • The quality of teaching and learning was of a high standard, with a number of instances of very good quality practice observed.
  • The quality of school leadership and management was very good: the senior leadership was supported in its work by an experienced board of management.
