Step One:

What we do: Visit your school for an initial target-setting day, during the course of which our consultant will attend a governors’ meeting (if required), conduct an analysis of your current Performance Management processes and facilitate a series of PM meetings in order to appraise your current procedures. We will also set your school up on School CPD Tracker and train you and your staff in how to use it.

What you do: Take us through your current processes and establish, with our consultant’s support, your vision for Performance Management in your school.

Outcome: You will ensure that your Performance Management cycle is efficiently planned, with a clear and concise timetable and series of outcomes, complying with Ofsted standards. School CPD Tracker will be set up, so that you can track and assess all colleagues’ appraisals for the whole year.

Step Two:

What we do: Review your Performance Management setup mid-way through the year, compiling a report into our findings and any next steps.

What you do: Using School CPD Tracker, easily track and assess your Performance Management cycle to ensure you and your staff are achieving your desired outcomes. Get in touch if you have any questions, concerns or feedback.

Outcome: You will follow a simply structured, focused Performance Management cycle, that you can check, amend and update quickly and effectively, using School CPD Tracker.

Step Three:

What we do: Revisit your school for an annual review, to ensure you are happy with your new Performance Management systems and structures, and your staff are fully upskilled on the latest guidance from Ofsted and the Department for Education.

What you do: Ask any outstanding questions you may have and ensure that you are left feeling fully satisfied that your Performance Management systems and structures are as rigorous, supportive, and developmental as you could wish.

Outcome: Performance Management in your school will involve meaningful target setting, within a supportive, clearly structured framework, to enable managers to apply fair criteria and feel confident in their assessment of colleagues, including those moving to Upper Pay Scale.
