How can SEF improve performance
Ofsted use the school SEF (self evaluation form) to review each school’s thoughts on their own strengths, training requirements and areas for improvement as one of their areas for evaluation during inspections. SEF in schools allows the leaders to effectively plan key areas of improvement and how to achieve their performance goals.
SEFOnline takes the pain out of creating a meaningful self evaluation because it is designed to take School Leaders through a carefully designed school self evaluation process to evaluate each aspect against a number of key performance indicators.
Once a school has been through the interactive tool and completed each section, they can download their finalised professional self-evaluation document. Schools would typically update their SEF each term after an assessment point. SEFOnline feeds directly into school improvement planning, making the process very useful.
Previous versions of your school SEF are archived for further reference. School data is presented clearly and accurately against national averages to illustrate the school’s performance. This then supports Senior Leaders when reporting to school Governors and shaping their School Improvement Plan as it clearly highlights the school’s strengths and weaknesses.
SEFOnline provides an accurate indication of where a school is, as well as identifying where the school can make future improvements.
