Note - in SPaRO, the 'Focus themes' column will already be prepopulated with data schools added to their SEF S-aS. Also, for this school sample, the external validation (EV) column is empty, as EV occurred before 2018 or will occur in coming months.
- WTD = working towards delivering
- D = delivering
- S&G = sustaining and growing
- E = excelling
- NA = not applicable.

Reflections on SEF S-aS and EV
A wider range of internal data collection required to support student performance. Professional learning for teaching staff in use of data to support learning.
Literacy and numeracy require strong development with a greater understanding of supporting student growth. Both formative and summative assessment requires additional learning on the part of staff. While the new Sentral upgrades have assisted further work with staff in this area to ensure all data sources are held is required.
PLPs and transition plans need to be strengthened with a more effective use of both to inform learning. While parents are engaged with these two processes, further work needs to be done with parents on using them with PLAN2 to inform learning.
