The Importance of Appraisal

Appraisal is an important school improvement vehicle and a key identifier of the CPD needs of the teaching staff in schools. Teachers are entitled to a high quality review of their work and also support to develop. To be really effective, Appraisal needs to be led well and implemented carefully.

Teachers’ professional development and pay, and ultimately learner outcomes, are directly affected by the quality of the appraisal process.

For Schools Education Services provides a variety of conferences plus training events for schools to ensure appraisers are both confident and skilled in their role and can play a crucial part in developing staff, improving provision and influencing outcomes for pupils.
