    Default How much is just too much

    So with all the gr8 help and advice from this group and particular Sarah Iam attempting my SEF well I have been for ages but feeling like I am coming to a conclusion .

    BUT it's pages long and everything I go to update add a bit I think of more to put else where.

    Are ofsted really gonna read it? If so I dnot want to miss anything out but if I write too much ate they just not gonna bother ...

    My next challenge is to actually grade myself arrrgh ....

    Sometimes Ofsted don't read it however long it is! That's life! I would say, try not to waffle and make it as reader-friendly as you can

    Mine was about 2 sides of A4 per section.

    My inspector read mine - bless her

    I have a friend who has done 2 x A4 sides per question and she got outstanding... mine is similar to War and Peace and I got outstanding.

    It's the quality that is important not how much you write. I am just a little bit wordy

    It's also important to focus on improvements/action plan and to evaluate what difference these made to raising children's achievements over time
