What questions does this pack have the answers to?

Have you conducted a personal development audit before? Wondering where to begin or wanting to ensure you cover all areas of personal development as outlined in the Education Inspection Framework (EIF)? 

The purpose of a personal development audit is to ensure that the school is providing a comprehensive and effective education that promotes the personal development of pupils. It can also help the school to meet regulatory requirements and to demonstrate its commitment to providing a high-quality education.

A personal develop audit provides a comprehensive evaluation of the school’s educational practices, identifies areas for improvement, and establishes a clear roadmap for continuous improvement. Gather the views from all stakeholders, including staff, pupils, parents, carers and governors. Evaluate your school vision and strategy, curriculum and resources, pupil support, spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development opportunities and relationships and sex education (RSE).

If completed honestly, conducting an audit in this area can be a useful tool while collecting evidence from a variety of sources, so you can gain a comprehensive understanding of personal development in your setting.

Key questions answered in this pack:

  • What is a personal development audit?
  • What sources of evidence can be used for a personal development audit?
  • Why is a personal development audit useful?
  • How will Ofsted inspect personal development?
  • How can I conduct a personal development audit?
  • How can I use the personal development audit to inform next steps?
