Levels of accountability and external scrutiny have never been so high in our schools. There are national standards for teachers which inform the appraisal process, schools are held accountable through regular Ofsted inspections and the oversight of the performance of academies and academy chains through Regional Schools Commissioners. The performance of schools is also under close scrutiny through their outcomes in national tests and examinations and other measurable data such as exclusions and attendance.
But can everything that goes on in our schools be measured in this way? How can schools evaluate their effectiveness in other ways, for example the quality of relationships, pastoral care and enrichment? How do some of our more effective schools use appraisal and performance review to secure improvement and develop the skills of their staff? How can lesson observation and other evaluation strategies be used developmentally?

The aim of this one-day briefing, offered jointly by ONECPD and the National Education Trust, is to provide colleagues from primary, special and secondary schools with the knowledge and skills which will ensure that they are in the best position to manage appraisal and performance review in their schools effectively. It will draw on national research, including case studies illustrating the best practice in this area.
We will address the following key issues:
- The role of Governors: specifically, how they can best fulfil their role as “critical friends” and develop the most productive relations with their head teachers and senior leadership teams.
- The importance of self-evaluation in appraisal and performance management.
- How appraisal can be used to develop as well as evaluate staff performance.
- Strategies for effective review: What works best in lesson observation, work scrutiny, pupil voice and other evaluation methods?
- How we can evaluate the impact of what we do which isn’t easily measured?
- The best ways of reviewing the performance of and developing non-teaching staff.
- Schools’ accountability to families and the community: Is local accountability a thing of the past?
