Herts Framework for School Self-Evaluation - 5th Edition

Fully Revised - July 2010

The revised Herfordshire Self Evaluation Framework (5th Edition) was updated according to the Ofsted schedule as it stood at July 2010. It is important that schools have robust internal self evaluation systems and records. This is an essential part of ongoing school improvement and vital in preparation for inspection.

Please refer to the Ofsted Inspection Framework page for the latest information for Hertfordshire schools.

The Hertfordshire framework is an excellent tool which supports your own school systems. The School Self Evaluation/Ofsted section on the Grid also contains a link to a set of 'Support Resources' which are linked to each of the SEF sections. Please note that the 'Tools and Proformas' section, while still useful, contains out of date material and is currently under review.
