|SSE Update Issue 7|
|In this issue a number of developments in school self-evaluation are examined, including the move to the next cycle of implementation of school self-evaluation in the period 2016-2020. In particular how the SSE process can support subject departments to develop their
planning for the new junior cycle curriculum and new subject specifications. These new specifications are based on learning outcomes and incorporate the knowledge and key skills around which the new curriculum is organised.
It looks at the continued growth of a culture of inquiry in post-primary schools through a meaningful and manageable SSE process. Finally, the Update gives some information about the new SSE circular which covers the period 2016-2020, and the supports that will be available to assist its implementation.
