  9. What it’s all about? “Self-review framework isn’t just about ICT and, interestingly, that is a key factor of its success. It focuses the mind on the whole spectrum of school development.” Steve Gator – Headteacher, Walker Technology College

  10. Developing the framework • A model for self-review and guiding towards maturity. • Developed and supported by all partner agencies. • 100 professionals contributed to its development. • Connects with the model of self-evaluation led by Ofsted. • Accessed via an online self review tool which offers additional facilities. • Contains the national standard for ICT and enables progress towards and application for the ICT Mark.

  11. Help a school decide: “The self-review framework has taught us to focus in on what we need. It is a quick and easy way to evaluate ourselves and the school.” Lisa Edwards – Kings Rise Community Primary School • Where you are in your whole school improvement and ICT development • How well you are doing compared to others • Where you want to go – aspirations • What good looks like and how you can achieve it • What actions to prioritise • Where you may need support.

Parents’ evenings (webcam with parents at home) School council meetings so the classes can see School context The ICT position The pupil perspective The staff perspective Vision Quick fixes Longer term strategies What do staff and pupils think? Asking friends about homework - sharing ideas or good work Webcam from residential visits Reports to Mrs Cameron (bad and good from classrooms) Communicate with Y7s at SHSCC Check the tidiness of bedrooms!

  26. …and what do the staff and pupils think? Using e-mail as a communication tool is invaluable – ensures all members of staff receive the same information. …it has opened up a world some pupils didn’t know existed….. and they now want to be part of it.

The children have used webcams as a ‘diary room’ tool, Big Brother style, and the children have reported on a variety of subjects…providing a safe space between them and their audience. The impact on pupil outcomes can be determined not only in their work but also in their behaviour, enthusiasm and interaction. We are sharing planning more effectively in teams and using a wealth of resources that are already out there.
