In order to help schools with the initial stages of working with the OfSTED school self-evaluation form (SEF), the School Improvement Service has created a step-by-step guide for completing Section A of the form - the structured self-evaluations of the school’s performance and progress.
The guide is in the form of a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, with an introduction followed by seven subsections relating to each subsection of the SEF.
Each section opens separately by clicking on the numbered buttons at the bottom of the Excel notebook.
There is a separate SEF for each phase of schooling though not, as yet, for nursery schools.
Make sure that you open the SEF that is appropriate for your school.
