Reflections on SEF S-aS and EV
We completed EV in 2019. We found that in some areas of our self-assessment we had been overly critical and determined our on balance judgments to be lower than the panel, and in others we had overestimated where we sat against the School Excellence Framework. As a result of the learning we took from the EV process and a change in school leadership we have evolved the way we complete our self-assessment against the SEF and can be confident that the focus themes identified are reflective of our school needs and therefore should be addressed in our Strategic Improvement Plan.
