School Effectiveness Framework
In Wales, we want a first class education system that gives every one of our children and young people the best start in life. To do this, we have to make sure that we provide the best learning outcomes for our children and young people. It also means that we make sure of their wellbeing. We hope to do this through the SEF. Here you can find information about the School Effectiveness Framework.
The School Effectiveness Framework (SEF) is Wales’ key policy for education reform and the one to which all other education policies are aligned.
- better learning outcomes and wellbeing for all children and young people regardless of their socio economic background;
- reducing the variation in learning outcomes within and between classrooms, schools and local authorities
The three national priorities on which the SEF is being focussed:
- improved literacy levels
- improved numeracy levels
- reducing the impact of poverty on educational attainment
The SEF is based on the principles of tri-level reform.
This means that all levels of the education community in Wales – schools, local authorities and ourselves at the Welsh Government – know what their responsibilities are.
The SEF will ensure that all the levels work together to develop our policies and to put them into practice.
To make sure that this work has the greatest impact, we have also been working closely with Her Majesty’s Inspectorate, Estyn.
The SEF takes account of the views of the people at the heart of our education system – our children and young people. We have consulted with them in our work on SEF and a number of school councils are now using the SEF to talk about how successful their schools are.
