Appraisal for principals and senior leaders
Looking to offer your senior leaders a powerful, external appraisal experience?
Effective appraisal helps your senior leaders develop to their full potential.
Our experienced consultants can work with your senior leaders to take them through effective appraisal that addresses the twin purposes of development and accountability.
Please note that we currently have only a very small number of places available for principal appraisal. If you are interested in going on our waiting list, please feel free to email Ros Stephens at email@example.com.
Our appraisal will:
- provide the principal or senior leader with an opportunity to give and to be given feedback on performance
- provide the principal or senior leader with an opportunity to use the appraisal results to set goals for professional development for the following year
- enable the school to use a planned approach to goal setting and link the performance of each individual staff member to school objectives
- provide the board of trustees with assurance that senior leadership performance is appropriately monitored.
Additional appraisal services principals and senior leaders
In addition to the standard components of the appraisal programme described above we are also able to:
- carry out observations and give feedback on classroom teaching or other aspects of the leader's role (e.g., running a PLD session with staff)
- run more regular coaching sessions
- run senior leader PLGs
- interview staff members, students and parents to provide feedback for the person being appraised
- carry out analysis of student achievement data for teams for which the senior leader is responsible.
