This practical manual is the second part of a 2-volume set that together makes up a detailed 2-year training programme for primary ICT and E-learning co-ordinators. The second book takes coordinators through the second year of the programme but may also be used as a starting point by more experienced staff. The structured training programme, timed over three terms, includes o a complete review of E-Safety procedures in the light of the Every Child Matters agenda. o Developing a funding model in order to plan for ICT developments, together with a broader ICT action planning review to embed a revised E learning vision through a series of long-term sustainable actions o Reviewing the curriculum in order to examine how the E Learning community will adapt its core practices to facilitate new technology. o the evolving role of school websites as they assume interactivity and examine the place of E Learning within the extended schools agenda. o Reviewing the use of ICT as a tool for management systems and discussing how ICT can be used to support different groups of children. o examining self-evaluation strategies linked to the school's SEF, the Ofsted Section 5 Framework and Every Child Matters. The books have a companion website, which will offer downloadable versions of the photocopiable sheets from the book, as well as links to other sources of help and advice.

Week 37, Task 28 – School Self-Evaluation of ICT – Progress over Time
Following on from our examination of Ofsted's current position with regard to ICT, colleagues should continue to adopt a 360-degree rounded self-evaluation by undertaking a long-term review of developments. Co-ordinators must understand what the school's progress over time looks like from an external perspective and the evidence base from which this is derived.
To begin colleagues should seek out their previous Section 10 Ofsted inspection report (pre-2005) and re-familiarize themselves with the school therein described in terms of ICT. At this stage highlight all references to ICT both as a subject and as a cross-curricular tool and prepare to summarize the report to your ICT leadership team.
