Revised s3 self evaluation tool for sustainable schools
This document is a revised version of the s3 self evaluation too for sustainable schools. It stems from work in the north-east that was started prior to the election in 2010 and has been designed by a group of people to try to meet the requirements of schools wishing to self evaluate. It is significantly shorter than the last version and some of the recommendations have been changed. Although this is not an official DfE publication and will not appear on their website, it has been welcomed by many supporting work around sustainable schools. It is hoped that it will prove a useful document to help schools to consider and evaluate how sustainability across curriculum, campus and community could be embedded into their practice to enhance school improvement.
Thanks to Rich Hurst, Sustainability Education Advisor, Durham for this addition

Welcome to our evaluation pages.
The SEF is going or changing, inspection criteria are under review, duties are shifting, but we still need to evaluate what we do in order to understand why we do it and how we might do it better!
Indeed, it is our belief that in the current climate evaluation is going to become even more important with providers needing to show the impact of their services and projects in order to secure future work.
These pages will be developed to offer support for those interested in evaluation whether as teachers, consultants, organisations or community leaders.
If you have ideas for what we could include on these pages then please contact us.
