Service Details:
  • The service is conducted off-site by an experienced inspector. On-site consultancy versions of the service are available READ MORE…
  • The text of the SEF is edited. Strengths and weaknesses are highlighted. The consultant will provide model re-wording for all sections of the SEF where necessary.
  • The credibility of judgements is evaluated based upon the evidence within the summary record of self-evaluation and a limited number of documents requested from the school.
  • Next steps are identified in terms of evidence gathering, self-evaluation procedures, and re-writing.
The consultant will consider the following criteria when evaluating the summary record of self-evaluation:
  • Are judgements and evaluations in the summary record of self-evaluation clearly expressed and accessible to the reader?
  • Is the summary record of self-evaluation suitably concise?
  • Is writing evaluative, not descriptive, and are significant judgements explained and exemplified as appropriate?
  • Is the summary record of self-evaluation internally consistent?
  • Does the summary record of self-evaluation fairly and accurately identify and explain the strengths and weaknesses of the school convincingly, including any differences between the school’s view and the RAISE online data?
  • Are the issues for improvement in the summary record of self-evaluation explicit, do they focus on the most significant weaknesses, particularly relating to achievement, the quality of teaching, behaviour and safety, and leadership and management. Are they consistent with the school improvement plan, and do they provide a clear and practicable basis for action?
Documents required from the school

  • RAISE online, current version and those versions from the previous two years
