Self-Evaluation and School Improvement

Development Priorities, Self Evaluation and Inspection Reports

Throughout the school session staff, pupils and parents are involved in self-evaluation activities to find out what they think about all aspects of the educational experience we offer at Castle Douglas Nursery and Primary. From these responses the school staff then draft a Standards and Quality Report which informs the priority targets for Nursery and School Developments over the next three years. The development of targets is planned through our School Improvement Plan.
