What is the Self Assessment Tool?
The Self-Assessment tool can be used to audit Health and Wellbeing in your setting and been developed based on existing national good practice. The tool is structured under six key areas:
- Leadership and Strategic Vision
- Staff Wellbeing and capacity including Continued Professional Development
- The planned curriculum to support physical, social and emotional development
- Identifying need and providing targeted support for those that need it
- Children and Young People’s participation
- Parent and Carers participation
Why do you need to complete the self-assessment tool?
Self-assessment is a great tool to help you highlight areas of good practice, areas of development and to identify key priorities and actions to focus on to improve Health and Wellbeing in your setting. If you sign up to the Health and Wellbeing Framework you will automatically receive the self-assessment form via email and can then start to work through the questions in the above areas.
There are two types of self-assessment. The first one is a detailed audit and the second is a shorter audit in a checklist format. The preferred process is each setting will complete the full audit, however if time and capacity is limited the shorter checklist can be completed initially, followed by the more detailed at a later date.
You will receive the self-assessment tool via an email once you have pledged towards the framework. To request the shorted version please contact PublicHealth@durham.gov.uk.
