Previous Chapter Chapter 5: Using Performance Reviews to Develop Teacher Performance Next Chapter
The full potential of performance management reviews to support the development of some teachers and to reverse the under-performance of others, has not been realised despite its mandatory status in schools. The statutory performance management process for teachers in mainstream schools in England and Wales has been designed to:
- focus attention on more effective teaching and leadership to benefit pupils, teachers and schools;
- help raise standards;
- increase teachers' job satisfaction and develop professionalism and expertise;
- set a framework for teachers, and their team leaders, to agree and review priorities and objectives within the overall framework of a school's improvement plans;
- support teachers by ensuring regular professional discussions with their team leaders about their work and professional development.
