Ysgol y Moelwyn
Ysgol Cwm y Glo
Ysgol Sarn Bach
Ysgol y Gelli
Ysgol O M Edwards
Particular attention was drawn to the Ysgol Abererch self-evaluation which was especially good.
(b) Suzanne Roberts of Ysgol y Moelwyn was welcomed to the meeting and she
guided the Members through the School self-evaluation and noted that the
departmental development plan intertwined with the self-evaluation and the
School's priorities. Attention was drawn
to the five questions and the evidence gathered in response such as the pupils'
forum, scrutiny of written and practical work and lesson observation.
It was noted that the self-evaluation was based on the subject head's knowledge of the Department's staff and pupils.
In response to questions, the following was noted:
· In terms of contact with the governing body, that governors had a discussion with the Department on what was being done to gain a better understanding which included looking at work plans, observing books and tasks.
· In terms of the Professor Donaldson Report, it was felt that Religious Education fitted into some elements but that more training and more time was needed to plan.
Recommended: (a) To accept and note the contents of the inspections and self-evaluations and in accordance with procedure to request that the Education Resources Officer sends a letter to the above schools congratulating them on their success and to note SACRE's appreciation of the efforts made by them in achieving the grades.
(b) To note and thank Suzanne Roberts for attending the meeting and for her presentation.
