Launch date announced! National Resource: Evaluation and Improvement (NR:EI)

See this post in Welsh

The NR:EI will be launched formally on 11th May with a virtual national introduction leading into sessions at a regional level. 

As explained in this blog item previously, the Resource has been designed to be of practical help to schools with their self-evaluation and improvement, ultimately helping to create the conditions for the new curriculum to succeed across Wales. It has been co-constructed with practitioners, consortia, Estyn and others, and is a flexible basis for school improvement planning.

During its development, the Resource has seen 120 schools engage, trial and feed back on early versions, a thorough approach that has led to improvements in its usability.  The pilot phase ended in February but you can still provide ongoing feedback and suggestions on the future development of the resource.

Practical examples of how the Resource has been used can be seen in these recently published playlists on Hwb (Playlist 1: Ysgol Dyffryn Conwy, Playlist 2: Glanhowy Primary). They show how schools have approached their self-evaluation of aspects of the curriculum, and teaching and learning, using prompts within the Resource.

An additional 11 playlists will be added to the resource by start of next term. We will also be mapping additional self-review toolkits to the resource over the coming weeks.
