Performance management/appraisal regulations require governing boards to appoint two or three governors to appraise the Head Teacher. The appointed governors must undertake the performance review with the External Adviser ensuring that clear objectives are set and monitored. Clear assessment should be made of performance overall and in particular the extent to which the Head Teacher has achieved his/her objectives. They must prepare a written statement recording the main points made by the appraiser, the Head Teacher’s response and the conclusions reached.
The recommendation for deciding whether or not to award a performance point on the pay spine is delegated to the governors conducting the performance review who must be mindful of the School’s Pay Policy.
Any alteration to the school ISR (Individual School Range) must be made with the approval of the delegated committee.
- To agree objectives with the Head Teacher and external Adviser in respect of performance management.
- To monitor objectives with the External Adviser half yearly. To meet at least twice a year.
