Written answers (Question to Education)

The Department’s inspectorate conducted a Whole School Evaluation (WSE) Inspection in Castleknock Educate Together and the report was published on my Department’s website on 04 September 2018. The report made a number of recommendations for improvement to the school management.

Responsibility for the implementation of improvements identified in the WSE lies in the first instance with the Board of Management of the school. In carrying out this duty the Board is obliged to consult with and keep the Patron, Educate Together informed of decisions and proposals as they work towards implementing the recommendations of the WSE.
