    Becta self-review framework

    Hi guys and gals,
    I am currently going through the process of reviewing my school using the Becta self-review framework as I believe we are worthy of the ICT Mark, however we have a few missing areas (leadership mainly) and i am taking it upon myself to work through and get this sorted.

    I will be over the next few days creating a (maybe more then one) questionnaire to create a vision which incorporates the views of govenors, teaching staff, stakeholders, parents, leadership team, parents and children. Obviously the questionnaire for the children will be different to the others and that one is done. I am however asking for opinions on what sort of questions I should include to ask the parents about what their vision of ICT should be. Any advice or opinions on this matter would be very welcome and hopefully my quest will start off on the right foot.

    I'm a technician and teaching assistant and I feel all the work I will put into this will pay off and provide me the experiance and portfolio to take my career to the next level.
    Not only for my own benefit however, having taught all the children in the school week in, week out (and having to remember 270-odd names a task in itself), I feel so passionately about providing these children with the resources they deserve.
    So please, any advice or opinions would be greatfully appreciated, and I thank you for your time.

    Steve

    Steve, I would strongly recommend you have a chat with George or Lesley at NIAS. They are both assessors and specialise in secondary schools. Drop me a PM if you want more details.

    The secret with the SRF is that is should not be a task done just by one person that wants to get the ICT Mark - it should be a whole school approach in which everyone is involved and it needs to be driven from the top.

    I don't think it is going to work particularly well if your SMT are not involved / apathetic to what the SRF is, and what you are trying to do?

    Re: Becta self-review framework

    Don't get me wrong I will be involving all parties but I shall be the one reviewing all the information and submitting it to the head to be evaluated. I'm not going off on a solo mission, but all the information and opinions do need to be brought to one central location in order for it all to be processed, I am that person, questionnaires, polls, interviews of certain individuals will all be down to me.

    Thanks for the heads up though.

    That's cool - I was just checking!

    Our Assistant Head / ICT-Coordinator has taken this on, though I am heavily involved.

    It looks to be a very worthwhile excercise - even without the ICT Mark it helps you concentrate on benchmarking where you are know - because lets face it, we all know you can't really move forward succesfully if you don't know where you stand.

    It has certainly opened my eyes mate, also having the responsibility and time to get on with the task shows in itself how worthwhile it is. I mean how often do you get given time to do your own work?

    Lemme know how you're getting on mate would be worthwhile to share problems.

    Cheers

    Make sure you forward plan the analysis of the results, its ok doing a questionnaire with lots of free text space but they are harder to analyse. You also do not want to limit them to canned responses as you often do not get an accurate view of the person

    The questionnaires have been sent out, just need to do the govenors ones now. Hopefully i will get about 20% of them back, people seem to find throwing bits of paper in the bin a real hoot
