You may already know that I work on behalf of a municipality in Western Sweden, at the moment. In my role, I assist the principal in finding ways to create a well-functioning school for all students.
The School Inspectorate will visit the school in about two weeks and based on our ongoing development processes, we have focused on, among other things, "Check Your School". This is a self-assessment tool to gain views on both success factors, but also improvement areas in the school's work.
Based on the results of self-assessment we have had a deep common reflection that has been both useful and difficult. We have realized how incredibly complex the task of developing the school is.
This awareness is in my opinion the first step needed to be able to move forward to the next step in development. Acknowledging the improvements that are needed for the students to get the best school!
The three areas we decided to focus on with are:
We all agree that these are important steps to create a school where all students can excel.
