Im trying to fill my SEF in im up to section 3 writting about how i meet the 5 every child matters outcomes

the guidance states that they are

 Achieve and enjoy
 Feel safe
 Adopt healthy lifestyles
 Make a positive contribution
 Develop skills for the future.

Am I following the wrong framework as ive been following the every child matters outcomes as

1. Staying safe
2. Being healthy
3. Enjoying and achieving
4. Making a positive contribution
5. Achieving economic wellbeing

Are they the same thing just worded diffrently??

Will this affect my SEF??

Someone please help :panic:

Ofsted changed the focus of the ECM outcomes for the purpose of the SEF.

So instead of saying ... to keep children healthy we wash hands, put tissues in a lidded bin, clean floors etc.

You need to say how what you do improves outcomes for the children.

To support children with learning about healthy lifestyles we... do x, y and z. This improves outcomes because children remember what they have learned, take their learning home, become independent and competent with hand washing etc.

Hope this helps! :D
