    I wouldn't spend every waking moment doing it, just put down the main points and don't waffle. If you don't upload it soon the inspector wont have read it anyway!

    Not everyone does a SEF and its not an Ofsted requirement. You just have to show reflection on your setting somehow.

    Good luck and let us have your feedback afterwards

    I wouldn't worry about your SEF too much, my last inspector didn't even mention mine and when I said to her about it her answer was 'it'll be on our system somewhere' urgh!
    They're not a requirement but as long as you can reflect and evaluate on what you do and offer you'll be fine.
    Good luck for Monday and let us know how it goes x

    Your SEF is something you are doing all the time - in your head or on paper - as you celebrate all the changes you make to your provision, attend training to learn new things, read articles to extend your knowledge etc...

    As long as you can let your inspector know that you are constantly improving and enhancing provision you will be fine!

    Good luck - don't forget to let us know how you get on

    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door
