(An unofficial presentation!)

What is the Self-review Framework?

The Self-review Framework (SRF):

  • constitutes an agreed understanding of what good, mature ICT looks like
  • provides consistency and clarity
  • is nationally recognised
    • Becta
    • Ofsted
    • Naace
    • NCSL
  • will be supported by clear guidance on the standards

What does the SRF cover?

It is constructed from 8 elements relating to ICT in schools:

  • Leadership and Management
  • Curriculum
  • Learning and teaching
  • Assessment
  • Professional Development
  • Extending Opportunities for Learning
  • Resources
  • Impact on pupil outcomes

What will the SRF do for our school?

Your school will be able to:

  • Review its position
  • Reference to evidence
  • Develop an action plan
  • Use resources and support
  • Maintain high standards
  • Compare to national standards
  • Benchmark against similar schools
  • Work towards e-confidence

What is the ICT Mark?

The ICT Mark:

  • replaces the Naacemark for Schools
  • is an optional accreditation, based on the SRF
  • represents an agreed threshold within the SRF
  • demonstrates commitment to continual improvement through ICT
  • allows schools to celebrate achievements
  • gives public recognition for areas of strength
  • is awarded by Becta and administered by Naace

How is the SRF structured?

What are the levels of the framework?

  • Descriptors are arranged into five levels
  • These can be considered in the following way:

5 = Nothing in place

4 = Started developing ICT

3 = Strategy embedded

2 = Coherence across the school

1 = Aspirational and e-mature

  • Note: Level 1 is “best”

What is the ICT Mark threshold?
  • Varies between aspects
  • Generally Level 2
  • May be adjusted in the light of experience

How does the SRF work?

The SRF:

  • is an online tool, using the Becta “matrix” approach
  • is designed for schools to make judgments about themselves –“self-review”
  • saves the school’s judgments (if logged in)
    • snapshot of current position
    • support for continuing review
    • trigger for ICT Mark accreditation
  • suggests next steps and indicates relevant support

How do we apply for the ICT Mark?

  • Schools apply “when ready”
  • You will be prompted when your school reaches the ICT Mark threshold in all 8 SRF elements
  • You must contact an accredited Assessor (from an online directory)
  • The Assessor will review the online evidence and make a school visit
  • The school will not have to create a full “portfolio” of evidence
  • There will be a fee to pay (details to be confirmed)
  • Accreditation is optional

How should we get involved?

  • Realise that self-review is “now”! (NB. Ofsted’s SEF)
  • Create a school SRF login and have a look
  • Start with a key element such as Leadership and Management or Impact
  • Distribute tasks
  • Use online support or bring in consultancy(NB. A consultant that supports the school with SRF cannot also be their Assessor)
  • Consider working with schools in your Cluster
