Inquire

We believe in the value of inquiry in driving up education standards, asking searching questions of what we do as individual practitioners and collaborative teams. Inquire supports you to do exactly that. It provides a platform to develop a calendar of inquiries aligned with your self-assessment report and improvement plan and capture and share outputs.

It even allows you to tag your area of inquiry to the relevant areas of an inspection framework, helping you build a cohesive picture of your provision.

FLEXIBILITY
Flexibility in set up and configuration
Before you use Mesma, you can set-up your own user accounts and most importantly, allocate areas of the SAR and improvement plan to people in your organisation to own. You can add your own guidance for your team to help them to complete it and store key documents for them to refer to so you know they are looking at the most up to date source. You can even change our template headings if you would prefer alternatives to suit your organisation.
HELP
Help & Guidance
Mesma has a built in Help function that directs you to the appropriate sections of the Common Inspection Framework. Our specialist team have added in additional guidance that we know will help you to make your SAR the best it can be. You also have the ability to add in your own guidance, bespoke to your organisation that will give invaluable support to your employees. Our support service means that if you have a burning question, you can get in touch and we’ll do all we can to help.
