Setting appraisal objectives – five top tips

As school leaders begin to think about setting appraisal objectives for the year ahead, Educate offers five top tips to ensure the whole process runs as smoothly as possible

It’s the time of year when school leaders are setting appraisal objectives for the year ahead. This is a fantastic opportunity to focus on developing your staff and raising teaching standards in your school, but we’re very aware it can also be a stressful process.

Here at Educate we have advised more than 4,000 schools over the past 15 years on appraisal and performance management, so we have put together five top tips for helping this year’s appraisal process run smoothly.

We’ve even developed Standards Tracker, an online performance management system, to help.

Increasingly we are finding that it makes good sense for schools to break appraisal objectives down into assessment period long segments – rather than setting them to run over a whole year.
