This session clearly lays out the responsibilities of governing boards for:
• Appointing a panel which conducts the headteacher’s annual appraisal – agreeing performance objectives, monitoring progress during the year, and assessing the head’s performance against those objectives
• Obtaining advice from an external professional adviser
• Ensuring that the headteacher conducts an effective performance appraisal process for teaching staff
• Relating staff pay decisions to performance.
Delegates will explore examples of performance objectives which are relevant to their school improvement priorities.
