Schools are required to undertake annual appraisals, including annual pay progression decisions for teachers. This process will set targets and objectives for the coming year. In conjunction with regular informal meetings, these processes are helpful in identifying any training needs and areas of improvement before they become problematic.
Separate to the performance related pay process, schools may also need to tackle performance issues, such as underperformance, poor quality teaching or mistakes. If performance does not improve then it may be appropriate to use the performance management policy and procedure, which may set out a performance improvement plan with formal targets for improvement and potential formal improvement warnings if performance does not improve to a required standard.
