Beacon ICT — Self-review Framework and ICT Mark

Quality ICT

ICT Mark logo (sample)Ofsted, NCSL, Becta and DfES continue to recognise the fundamental role of ICT in learning, teaching and management.

Becta’s new Self-review Framework (SRF) provides schools with the necessary foundation from which self-review of ICT can proceed. These are its eight elements:

  • Leadership and Management – developing and communicating a shared vision for ICT and planning a sustainable ICT strategy across the whole school.
  • Curriculum – planning and leading a broad and balanced ICT curriculum to enable pupils to apply and develop their ICT capability across all subjects.
  • Learning & Teaching – ensuring that teaching is enhanced through informed planning, resulting in quality of use of ICT for learning and teaching.
  • Assessment – assessing ICT capability to support pupils’ learning.
  • Professional Development – identifying and addressing the ICT training needs of the school and individual staff.
  • Extending Opportunities for Learning – understanding the needs of pupils and the community in their extended use of ICT.
  • Resources – ensuring suitable learning and teaching environments where ICT can be used effectively and in line with strategic needs.
  • Impact on Pupil Outcomes – demonstrating how pupils can make good progress in ICT capability; reviewing pupil attitudes and behaviour and how the use of ICT can impact positively on pupil achievement.

The ICT Mark is a quality mark, jointly developed by Becta and Naace, available to all schools who have progressed through Becta’s self-review framework. The Mark demonstrates that a school has harnessed technology to improve learning and teaching, efficiently manage education, extend opportunities for learning and improve communications with parents and the wider community.
