How do I complete a Deep Audit?

Themes in each QI are broken down into Key Features of Effective Practice. Schools can audit any key feature by traffic lighting the different elements.

  • Red: Requiring significant improvement or development
  • Amber: Some aspects of effective practice but requiring further improvement
  • Green: Area of strength or fully effective practice
  • None: Where an element is not relevant or does not apply

The traffic lights can be used to help the school rate each Key Feature using the HGIOS 1-6 scale. Once a deep audit has been completed, schools can use the ratings to rate Themes and Quality Indicators. The deep audit ratings are also summarised in the QI Report.
