The deep audit tool provides a searching analysis of the school’s practice against the 32 indicators of the LQF. At each phase of development the indicator is broken down into three and frequently four component parts.
For detailed instructions on how to use the Deep Audit Tool, go back to Step 3.3 of this guide. For convenience, the download buttons for the Deep Audit Tool are also included at the end of this section.
Having completed the audit you have a big decision to make. Do we feel that we have sufficient evidence of secure practice to proceed to accreditation, or are there still some indicators that are in need of further attention?
To download a copy of the Full Audit Tool, open up and print these 5 files. The first 3 are write-protected, but the last two can be copied and edited if you wish.
Experience suggests that printing a hard copy of the audit tool for each person taking part in the audit is essential.[If you want to produce a backed master copy: do not back sheet 1a; put sheet 2a upside down on the back of 1b; 3a upside down on the back of 2b etc etc; then comb bind along the long edges]
For an alternative means of monitoring and evaluating the curricular aspects of the LQS, try this estimating quiz. It encourages you to think about how far your school has progressed along the journey of building better learners in a planned, progressive manner. It will enable reflection on Principles 6, 7, 8 and 11 of the LQS.
