Headteacher Performance Management

HTPM – a statutory duty

The Governing Body has a statutory duty to monitor and manage the performance of the Headteacher on an annual basis. The task of appraising the Headteacher, including the setting of objectives, should be delegated to a sub-group consisting of two/three members of the Governing Body supported by an external adviser.

VNET Education CIC is proud to be a provider of choice for governing bodies as the external adviser for this annual meeting.

VNET provides a comprehensive package for governors which includes:

  • An online training session which is updated annually and recorded for future reference
  • Guidance and supporting documentation
  • One half-day of VNET Associate* time (usually online) dedicated to supporting governors in their annual performance management meeting with the headteacher.

The package costs £400+VAT

HTPM Online?

The Covid-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for schools but also some emerging opportunities. Through our work supporting governors over the past two years with these reviews, we have seen great advantages of online meetings.

We have found:

  • Sharing documentation for discussion is much easier online and the task of completing the paperwork a much more collegiate process
  • Governors find it easier to commit sufficient time to the process as there is less travel time
  • It is often more convenient for both Heads and Governors
  • Importantly, whilst we are still within the pandemic, this is a way of mitigating risk in lengthy face to face meetings.

Our headteacher has written with great positivity about this morning. I felt it all went very well and that we have a strong basis for moving the school forward.

Governor

Thank you again for your positive comments and words of encouragement - they really have spurred me on for what I imagine to be another challenging term!

Headteacher

I have greatly appreciated your support with the review and your ability to forensically fillet the evidence, see the many positives but also to know where we need to take our headteacher next and to do it in a positive way.
