CSSC launches ethos self-evaluation toolkit
The Controlled Schools’ Support Council (CSSC) launched its ethos self-evaluation toolkit for controlled schools on 24 October 2019.
Ethos within a school is critically important and during the development of the CSSC ethos self-evaluation toolkit, the significance of a clear ethos to enable a school to thrive became apparent. It was gratifying to hear from many school Principals the impact that their school’s ethos had on the aspirations of pupils striving to reach their potential. Speakers included: Darren Mornin, Principal, Limavady High School, Roz McFeeters, Principal, Hill Croft School and Peter Henry, Principal, DH Christie Memorial Primary School who shared the ethos journey for their schools and how ethos defines the school experience for the school community.
Controlled schools across all phases of education live their school ethos on a daily basis, and this toolkit has been developed to encourage schools within the sector to self evaluate their ethos.
