On paper we can ask children to draw diagrams in order to ‘model’ ideas of what they intend to do. Children then benefit from the opportunity to talk about drawn designs.

Remember that it is acceptable for your audit to tell you that you need to find out more about the teaching in an age range, for example. What you must do is build a plan of action to get that information. These short, medium and long term plans are useful to organise and prioritise your work, not a stick to beat yourself with. If you are unable to achieve aims, reschedule them. If you seem to be achieving little, it might help you to seek advice from the head or other, more experienced members of staff who are, perhaps, coordinators themselves.
