School Effectiveness+

Based on 'The 25 Characteristics of High-Performing Schools', School Effectiveness+ (SE+) is a complete school effectiveness and support system for schools. SE+ helps you assess strengths, prioritise improvements, work with other schools, provide school self-evaluation, deliver good outcomes, and evidence progress to Ofsted.

SE+ enables the senior leadership team, including the governing body, to carry out a comprehensive evaluation of the school in one single diagnostic process. School self-evaluation is combined with the views of pupils, parents, staff and governors which are electronically gathered and analysed. The result is a detailed ‘Maturity Profile’ which identifies the school’s strengths and priorities for development. The resulting analysis can automatically populate a School Development Plan and be presented as an electronic Self Evaluation Form (SEF) organised under the current Ofsted schedule headings. Schools in Multi Academy Trusts (MATs) or clusters can also benchmark and compare performance with partner schools, leading to enhanced collaborative improvement work within a common framework.
