Best practice in self-evaluation: a survey of schools, colleges and local authorities

This report looks at the factors which contribute to effective self-evaluation. It is based on visits to 12 schools, seven further education colleges and three local authorities where previous inspection reports identified strong practice in this area. The findings are intended to disseminate best practice and to provide help to institutions improve this aspect of their work. The report complements Improving performance through school self-evaluation and improvement planning, published jointly by the DfES and Ofsted in June 2006.

This report will be of particular interest to schools, further education and sixth form colleges, and to local authorities and national bodies.
