School-wide appraisal systems

Can you hand on heart say your appraisal process is making a difference to your teachers’ teaching and your learners’ learning?

Do all your teachers have a shared understanding about what effective teaching looks like? And is this understanding explicitly linked to the Standards for the Teaching Profession?


We provide tailored in-school or cluster support to help you:

  • ensure your appraisal processes really support teacher learning
  • develop a shared picture of effective teaching across your school or cluster
  • unpack the Standards for the Teaching Profession
  • clarify roles and responsibilities for appraisal processes in ways that ensure staff and leaders share responsibility
  • design and use teacher portfolios
  • support staff to set effective goals
  • design systems for collecting evidence for three key purposes: ongoing teacher learning, renewal of registration, and attestation
  • engage constructively in difficult appraisal conversations
  • write effective appraisal reports
