A whole-school evaluation of management, leadership and learning (WSE-MLL) was undertaken in February 2016 in Ballinteer Community School. This report presents the findings of the evaluation and makes recommendations for improvement. During the evaluation, the inspection team met with the school’s board of management, in-school management, and groups of teachers, parents and students. Inspectors also reviewed a range of school documentation and responses to questionnaires and examined other data in relation to the operation of the school. As part of the evaluation, a range of lessons across a number of subject areas was inspected.

Some of the Key findings were:

  • The board of management is properly constituted, and its members are highly committed to the school and provide important direction and support for the senior management team.
  • The roles of the senior management team are clearly defined and agreed and the team works extremely effectively to manage and lead the school community.

  •  Senior management leads by example and has effected many positive changes and initiatives in the school in recent years.

  •  The school has a range of initiatives and programmes in place to promote student welfare, supported by an effective care team.

  •  Arrangements for students with special educational needs are very well organised and planned.

We look forward to working together with our staff, parents, students and the Board of Management to maintain and build on these positive findings, and to work on implementing the inspectors' recommendations for the further improvement of our school.
