School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document 2013 and guidance on School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions September 2013
‘LAs and governing bodies are required to have regard to the statutory guidance, and in respect of guidance on procedural matters a court or tribunal may take any failure to do so into account in any proceedings. Broadly speaking, this means that any party not following this guidance would need to have good reason not to do so and would need to be able to justify any departure from it.’
In other words …
Staff performance and development
Are two of the most, if not the most, important levers for school improvement so it needs to be done well in order for children and young people to achieve their potential.
Governing bodies have a statutory responsibility to conduct their schools so as to promote high standards of education; if there is no formal appraisal then the picture of the school is incomplete and it will not be possible to set an effective improvement strategy.
Continuing professional development (CPD) for staff
If there is no formal appraisal process then it is difficult to determine and arrange appropriate CPD, which again will impact on the standard of education offered.
Good employment practice
The governing body has a duty of care to its staff, and appraisal is part of any effective organisation’s staffing procedures. All staff deserve to be managed well and, as part of this, to have an effective appraisal which is carried out properly and informs their CPD.
The OfstedFramework (updated September 2013) revised and increased expectations in relation to appraisal and governors’ involvement in pay progression. Inspectors:
Pay policy needs to be clear about the grounds for an appeal and the process to be followed, e.g.
Objection to PRP is not a grounds for appeal.
1. How effectively are the staff appraised?
2. How effectively do we appraise the headteacher?
3. What should our pay policy say about performance and progression?
4. What is the correlation between appraisal outcomes, pay and the quality of teaching and learning?
5. How effective is performance management in improving teaching and learning?
