Goodbye SEF

Labels: | 0 comments»

So Michael Gove announced yesterday "another step in the lifting of the bureaucratic burden on heads and teachers" and has asked Ofsted to ditch the SEF. View the full press release.

Although the SEF was never a statutory requirement, schools felt obliged to complete it - I can imagine how the conversation might go should a team of inspectors turn up to a school without one....

But Ofsted is still in place and the current inspection framework is based to a large extent on evaluating the schools own self-evaluation. Some schools, whilst detesting the exercise of form filling, have said that it was at least a structured way to record their self-evaluation in 'Ofsted speak' ready for a short notice inspection.

So, a dilemma? How best to record the results of your self-evaluation?
