Teacher Development Day
2023年5月23日教師發展日(學校自評) : 自評是質素保證架構的重要一環。本校為促進學校發展和問責，須持續進行自評。過去多年，進行自評的表現持續進步，並隨著經驗的累積把自評融入學校恆常的運作，以促進學校發展。善用學校現有的資料作為自評的憑證，避免不必要的文件記錄和準備工作。繼續鼓勵採用全校參與的模式進行自評，並根據自評結果制訂工作計劃，以有效貫徹「策劃—推行—評估」的自評循環理念，達致學校的持續進步，運用學校報告範本，記錄自評結果和規劃來年的發展計劃。為加強透明度和問責，通過本校網頁等不同渠道，讓主要持份者（包括家長）閲覽學校報告。學校是持續發展的，每年的校情均會改變，而面對的機遇、挑戰也會不同，所以學校每年都需要進行自評。學校於學期結束時評估過去一年工作計劃和各方面工作的成效（評估Evaluation），然後按學校的情況和兒童學習需要，策劃下學年的工作計劃（策劃Planning），在新學期推行有關的策略和工作時，管理層則擔負監察的角色（推行及監察Implementation & monitoring）。在計劃推行的過程中，學校會搜集有關評估的資料，以備學期結束時進行評估(Evaluation)，參考優化的表現指標進行自評，不斷自我完善。
On May 23, 2023, we organized the Teacher Development Day (School Self-Evaluation): Self-evaluation is an important part of the quality assurance framework. To promote school development and accountability, our school conducted self-evaluation on an ongoing basis. Over the past few years, the performance of self-evaluation has continued to improve, and with the accumulation of experience, self-evaluation has been integrated into the regular operation of the school to promote school development. Make good use of the school's existing information as evidence for self-evaluation to avoid unnecessary documentation and preparation. To encourage the use of the whole-school participation model for self-evaluation, and formulate work plans based on the self-evaluation results to effectively implement the self-evaluation cycle concept of “planning-implementation-evaluation” to achieve continuous improvement of the school. We also use the school report template to record self-evaluation and review the results and plan the development plan for the coming year. In order to enhance transparency and accountability, the school report is made accessible to key stakeholders (including parents) through various channels such as the school website. The school is developing continuously, and the situation of the school will change every year, and the opportunities and challenges it faces will also be different, so the school needs to conduct self-evaluation every year. At the end of the school term, the school evaluates the work plan for the past year and the effectiveness of all aspects of work (Evaluation), and then plans the work plan for the next school year (Planning) according to the school's situation and students' learning needs, and implements relevant strategies in the new term. The management is responsible for the monitoring role (Implementation & monitoring). During the implementation of the plan, the school will collect relevant evaluation information for evaluation at the end of the term, refer to the optimized performance indicators for self-evaluation, and constantly improve itself.
