In 2007, as part of its ongoing evaluation of curriculum implementation, the Inspectorate conducted a thematic evaluation of SPHE in forty primary schools. This report presents the findings from that evaluation. In order to gain a clear insight into what was happening in the provision of SPHE, the inspectors observed teaching and learning, and conducted interviews with teachers, management and pupils. They examined relevant school documentation and pupils’ work. Furthermore they analysed the responses provided by senior pupils and their parents in SPHE questionnaires.
