Taking Headteacher Appraisal Seriously
Effective performance appraisal of the headteacher is seen as a key aspect of the effective governance of the school and a key driver for school improvement as well as supporting headteacher retention. Since 2012, boards have had considerable freedoms in managing the process but a recent study (NGA March 2018) indicates that in many cases these freedoms have not been used. The introduction of MATs has resulted in changes to the lines of accountability and the roles of Boards and local committees. The NGA study suggests that boards would find it useful to consider a range of options in terms of the process.

The Skills and Behaviours of Effective Boards (3rd July 2019)
The Governance Handbook sets out purpose of governance which is to provide confident, strategic leadership, and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance. This purpose is reflected in the three core functions of all Boards. Under the new Ofsted inspection arrangements, inspectors will explore how governors carry out each of these functions. Inspectors will seek evidence of the impact of those responsible for governance. This course looks at the skills and behaviours that Boards need to ensure effectiveness in delivery and it gives governors an opportunity to find out how other Boards work.
