The school has an explicit vison for its development and educational programme. Planning documents are drawn up which map school policy in term of long and short-term goals. Quality management is also monitored in the following ways:
- Parent Satisfaction Survey: every 2 years a satisfaction survey is held. The results of this provide the Board with a good impression of areas in which parents feel there should be an improvement in quality as well as areas in which parents are satisfied with school policy.
- Staff Satisfaction Survey: The school staff members are also asked to indicate the areas in which they are satisfied with their working environment and the school organisation. The result of this survey lead to activities, which aim to address areas of dissatisfaction.
- Risk Analysis & Evaluation (RI&E). In every school there are circumstances, which have an influence on the safety, health and psychosocial pressure on staff and pupils. In order to achieve an optimal working environment, it is important to be aware of the working risks in the school. An inventory of these risks is the basis for the creation of a safe, healthy and happy school. The employment law (Arbo-wet) makes it compulsory for all institutions which have employees to keep an up-to-date risk analysis. A plan of action for the improvement of working conditions forms part of this analysis. The analysis and evaluation (RI&E) has to be assessed by a certified employment conditions organisation or expert.
- Pupil Progress Tracking. An inventory is made at least twice annually of all pupils’ progress. Action points leading from this are documented and followed up. For some children this will lead to additional learning support being offered. Whereas for other children there may be a need for extension work to be organised. In addition, there is an assessment calendar that ensures that children’s progress is carefully monitored throughout the year through analysis of the results of standardised testing. At the beginning of each school year the older children are tested on their cognitive abilities (CAT test) and at the end of the year all children from Y1-Y6 take the Progress in English (PiE) test and Progress in Maths (PiM) test.
