School Self-Evaluation Surveys

The SEF is no longer officially required but some schools are still using the SEF and SHEU will continue to offer schools a Self-Evaluation report

The climate in which schools operate is of course always changing, and some of the changes from the last Government include:sef_1.jpg

* The new OFSTED framework for inspection

* The Every Child Matters White Paper, setting out five groups of outcomes

* The new Healthy Schools standard Schools are also being seen as a key setting for implementing the Choosing Health White Paper.

Our services include:

 

* HRBQ Lifestyle Survey, a comprehensive questionnaire for pupils particularly relevant to the new Healthy Schools standard

* Every Child Matters survey, a short questionnaire for parents, pupils and staff that addresses each of the five outcomes in the Every Child Matters White Paper

Both questionnaires include issues highlighted in recent Government policy and proposals. Your school will receive a set of tables and a report comparing your results with a reference data set.

We can create a new consultation exercise to satisfy your own particular needs, if you suggest some topics that you want to ask about, we can do the rest.

Comments about SHEU

"This week I have been working on a major strategy for service design -- it is easy to get solely focussed on hospitals, performance targets, and work force planning -- all very important; but at the same the needs of young people and how we need to work across agencies to address the health needs of today and tomorrow must be recognised. SHEU is founded to do just this."
