The staffing review l.jpg

The Staffing Review descriptions to inform performance management & CPD

The Staffing Review provided us with the opportunity to develop a shared vision of a future structure, which will result in enhanced teaching and learning for pupils enabling us to deliver our school’s teaching and learning priorities as efficiently and effectively as possible.

6th May 2005


The staffing review8 l.jpg

The Staffing Review descriptions to inform performance management & CPD

The reviews must be conducted with a view to ensuring that the management and deployment of all staff and the allocation of responsibilities and duties is effective and focused on teaching and learning to raise standards.

The review will encompass the staffing structure for all staff.  It should be a genuine whole-school review and not an assimilation exercise (ie not simply substituting the new Teaching and Learning Responsibilitypayments for the old management allowances).  Instead, the review provides the opportunity to develop with staff and trade unions a shared vision of a future structure which will result in enhanced teaching and learning for pupils.

The School Improvement Plan will be a key document to inform the review.  The revised staffing structure should provide the capacity to deliver the schools' teaching and learning priorities.

Our Staffing Structure descriptions to inform performance management & CPD

Design a staffing structure for your school, thinking about the following points:
