Ofsted inspectors want to see evidence of reflective practice in settings they inspect, and a good way for providers to demonstrate this is to complete a self-evaluation form (SEF) on a regular basis. Ofsted no longer offers their standard SEF, and providers are free to record their self-evaluation however they wish. (Indeed, providers can choose not to document their self-evaluation at all, but this can make it more difficult to discuss and evidence your practice at the time of inspection.)
The SEF for OSCs Pack contains a template SEF that has been created specifically for out of school clubs and is therefore more applicable to the practice in such settings. As well as the SEF template, we've also included a version of the SEF with example answers, as well as a selection of forms to help you gather the evidence that you will then summarise in the SEF.
The SEF for OSCs Pack is delivered via download so that you can start using its contents immediately. The template documents are supplied in Microsoft Word format so that you can easily modify them as needed for your own childcare setting. If you are unsure whether your word processing application can open Word documents, find out more about software compatibility.
Contents of the pack
The SEF for OSCs Pack contains 9 documents, all in Word or PDF format and ready for you to use. The contents of the pack are listed below:
The SEF for OSCs Pack is often purchased together with the Early Years for OSCs Pack, which contains templates and guidance to help you meet the requirements of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage in an out of school club setting.
