It is great to be able to use one of our Grow School Improvement days for Headteacher Performance Management. The advice is always of high quality. The consultant went out of his way to find a time which was convenient for us all within a short timescale. He took the time to listen to us all and his experience was invaluable in agreeing my objectives.

How it works:

Maintained schools are required to appoint an external adviser for guidance, support and consultation on establishing headteacher appraisal objectives.

All of our Performance Managers are accomplished education professionals or have previously been headteachers with extensive experience of working with governing bodies and headteachers.

After meeting with the headteacher and the panel, they will help formulate clear objectives that are appropriate to your school’s context, your headteacher’s level of experience and meet the requisite criteria of Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic & Time-Bound.

As a supportive and developmental statutory process, your headteacher’s appraisal process should underpin your school’s ambition for continuous improvement.
