“Within these learning spaces both old and new we plan to continually improve and increase the opportunities for teachers and pupils to develop their skills and use ICT as an exciting, engaging and creative medium of expression.” (Dolau Primary School ICT Vision Statement 2010)
What is the BECTA SRF?
The Becta Self Review Framework or BECTA SRF is an online tool which enables schools to assess and benchmark their use of ICT across all their activities. It enables schools to identify where they are, and shows the practical steps they can take to improve their ICT use to benefit the organisation. In many areas, it complements the work schools currently undertake for Ofsted’s Self Evaluation Framework.
The self-review framework comprises eight elements; these elements cover the whole development of ICT across the school and enables the organisation to assess itself against the following elements.
This process when completed will yield a summary of the school's current standing and give actions to progress further in their use of ICT.
