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.

"The data for (us) are very useful ... This is especially important when evaluating the impact of interventions regarding alcohol or other areas, as the survey data are likely to provide an earlier indication than routine data sources."

Specialist Registrar in Public Health

"As a Deputy Head in a large secondary school I was involved in taking part in a city wide health and wellbeing survey over a period of six years. Completing the survey every two years grew in importance year on year, with the final cycle having a major impact on our SDP, PHSE curriculum, Ofsted outcomes and governor understanding.
Over the six year period we moved from a small sample in two tutor groups filling in a paper survey to two year groups completing an online survey. The reports produced give graphical analysis of a wide range of issues. As a result of the survey we increased the number of PSHE workshop days for students to address issues such as smoking, drug and alcohol awareness, anti-bullying workshops. The surveys helped Governors make a positive informed decision to allow Brook Advisory Clinic nurses on site to support students.
As a result of taking part and using the evidence provided we were able to offer more support for students which had a direct impact on improved attendance and outcomes."

Many thanks to you and your team for turning this around so quickly.
We really appreciate it, and also your extra support with the administration this time.

"The credit goes to you for the fabulous information the survey yields!"

Assistant Director Schools and SEN

"The data from the 2018/19 survey is still in heavy use here, the physical activity related findings were pivotal in changing the relevant strategy recently to target less active groups like girls towards the end of secondary school, and I’ve three fairly hefty jobs on the to-do list that will use the data with other sources to identify target schools for mental health and physical activity projects, and another looking at community safety. I call it the gift that keeps giving and that certainly seems to be the case!"

Senior Public Health Specialist (Intelligence)

At the time, the results were very useful and the feedback report very useful and insightful. Significant changes will occur in our schools health and wellbeing provision next year and conducting another survey will certainly help me to ensure I am planning effectively for the needs of our pupils.

Head of Health and Wellbeing

...Many thanks for all your work with this year’s survey. It’s already proving to be invaluable especially against the severe cuts in services that are looming.
