Mesma was set-up in response to changes implemented by education watchdog Ofsted, which led to education providers receiving reduced notice of inspection.

New features added to the online Mesma software make it even quicker for schools to rank their status against key criteria and identify areas requiring urgent attention or improvement.

A newly enhanced RAG status “dashboard” has been incorporated within the Self Evaluation Report (SEF), enabling the user to see at a glance how a school’s evaluation compares against a series of key questions based on grades to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses.

A new SWOT analysis has also been added against each key question along with the ability to move these individually to the Section Summary at the click of a button. The screen has also been reformatted with the “Aspects” appearing down the left hand side and their associated “Key Questions” to the right of the screen.

RAG and SWOT reports can be produced and downloaded to complement traditional SEFs for sharing and integration with improvement plans. The new features are an integral part of Mesma, which is an intuitive, beneficial and engaging management tool to encourage greater participation by staff in the self-evaluation process.

It is a web-based resource, which allows the user to rapidly set-up dedicated accounts and allocate important areas of the self-assessment report and improvement plan to authorised people within schools.

  • The Mesma software is available through an annual subscription and is tailored to meet specific requirements and individual needs. More at www.mesma.co.uk or by calling 0845 6588370
