Course Objectives

This course is based upon on the requirement of the Teacher's Pay & Conditions document, the Governance Handbook, recent guidance and the three core functions of governance to emphasise the governor’s role in the Headteacher's Appraisal process and the need to support as well as challenge the Headteacher in their leadership of the school .

The course will cover the vison and priorities of the School, what Governors need to know before they are involved in a Headteacher's Appraisal and accessing the information required to make an informed decision in order to form the basis of an effective and robust appraisal process.
• The course will also cover how objectives should be arrived at, provide an understanding of what is meant by a SMART target and associated CPD and that these guiding principles form the basis of clear and sharp Headteacher targets alongside the wellbeing of the Headteacher in the process
• The course will also focus upon the pursuit of the school’s vision, reviewing targets throughout the year and dealing with targets that aren’t met.
