School Effectiveness Visits

As part of our school to school support strand, we can provide your school with school effectiveness visits.

These include headteacher performance management and a school improvement partner relationship.

Headteacher performance management

This is a stand alone, one day package on headteacher performance management.

The session will be undertaken by a suitably trained and experienced professional i.e. SIP, NLE.

The session will include:

  • A review of data, SEF and school improvement plan

A discussion with the headteacher will include:

  • Progress towards previous year’s objectives
  • Priorities for the school (from data, Ofsted, SEF & School Improvement plan)
  • Suggested objectives for the coming year
  • Support governors in reviewing previous year’s objectives and making a decision as to whether each objective has been met
  • Support governors in agreeing suitable objectives for the coming year
  • Write a statement of review and new objectives for governors (if required)
