26 October, 2006 - Over 200 school inspection reports published on Department of Education & Science website

202 school inspection reports were released on the Department's website today alongside the responses received from the individual schools inspected. New inspection reports on the web today include

  • 24 Whole School Evaluations (WSE) reports on primary schools
  • 11 Whole School Evaluations (WSE) reports on post-primary schools
  • 162 Subject Inspection reports conducted in second level schools
  • 3 Evaluations by Inspectors of Youth Encounter Schools
  • 2 Evaluations by Inspectors of Youthreach & Senior Traveller Training Centres

Since 6th February 2006, school inspection reports, such as WSE and Subject Inspections, are due to published on the Department of Education and Science's website at regular intervals during the school year. There are now 356 reports available on the website, covering 282 different schools.

Whole School Evaluation reports comment on the school's management, planning and management of resources, the effectiveness of teaching and learning, its arrangements for student assessment, supports for students, provision for minority groups and home-school links. Depending on the size of the school an inspector or team of inspectors visit the school for a period of time to evaluate management and planning, teaching and learning and supports for pupils.

Following this evaluation phase of WSE, Inspectors discuss the findings and recommendations with school management and members of teaching staff. This is followed by a period for factual verification of the report and a timescale is built into the process for the school to respond to the WSE report. At the end of this process the WSE and School Response are published simultaneously on the Department's website.

Subject Inspection reports evaluate the teaching and learning of specific subjects in second-level schools. A number of subjects can be inspected as part of a WSE or a school can have a 'stand alone' subject inspection. The reports appearing today cover a wide range of subjects including English, Art, Science and Biology, Music, Maths, SPHE, French, Geography and Gaeilge.

Following feedback on the first two batches of reports published on the web in June, all inspections carried out in Irish (Gaelscoil, Gaeltacht schools, Irish subject inspections) will now be available in both Irish and English on the website.

For the first time, evaluations on Youth Encounter Schools as well as centres for education- Youthreach and Senior Traveller Training Centres - are also being published.  There are five Youth Encounter Project Schools  in the country, three in Dublin and one in Limerick and one in Cork. These schools were set up on the 1970's to provide educational services for 11-16 year olds who were not suited by the conventional school system. All five will be evaluated this year, with the first three reports being published today.

There are 32 Youthreach centres and 35 Senior Traveller Training Centres in the country. Reports on two of these centres evaluated are being published today. Further evaluations on these education centres will conducted in the coming year.

The Inspection Reports can be accessed in the highlights section of the Department's website www.education.ie.
