Get rid of the paper – manage your appraisals online
In replacing a paper based performance management system, SchooliP ensures that information is immediately available in one central place. This streamlined approach means that data is accessible throughout a review. Therefore, a two-way process is established where a teacher and their line manager can see evidence, comments and feedback at any point during the academic year. This encourages a culture of collaboration where constant dialogue occurs. Therefore, a picture of performance is built up over time and there are no unwanted shocks at the end of an appraisal.
Empowering leaders with school improvement
The wealth of information generated by SchooliP empowers senior leaders to make better decisions to drive improvement. Performance management data is automatically collated within the system and this significantly reduces any administrative burden. The immediate availability of information means that leaders are better informed of the strengths and weaknesses of their workplace. SchooliP saves valuable time and is proven to enhance the decision making process in schools.
Evaluating the effectiveness of teaching
SchooliP means that observations can be carried out in real time on a tablet or laptop. Feedback is immediately collated in one centralised place via our intuitive recording system. This establishes a consistent approach to observing lessons. Outstanding, embedded and teaching that requires improvement can be quickly identified. The flexibility of SchooliP means that various forms of observation can be recorded. For instance: full lessons, learning walks and work scrutiny. We also have the facility of recording lessons to create lasting videos for detailed analysis. Overall, SchooliP enables teachers to learn from their experiences and enhance the quality and effectiveness of their teaching over time.
Maintaining high standards of teaching
SchooliP enables staff members to rate themselves as a means of self-reflection. Whilst this is a common practice, our software enables a radar diagram to be constructed of relative strengths and areas for improvement. This can used in conjunction with the opinions of line managers to identify which members of staff require development. Our customers often use the teachers’ standards as categories. From a whole school perspective, this is useful to identify best practice, inform INSET planning and establish mentoring. Therefore, collaboration is encouraged, and a culture of self-reflection is established. Information is immediately available to empower leaders in making effective decisions.
Maximise Continuous Professional Development
SchooliP streamlines the management of CPD requests in your school. Coordinators are able manage this process in one centralised electronic place and make informed decisions. CPD spending can be monitored and cover needs easily be identified. Once teachers have attended a course, immediate feedback is gathered. Further feedback can be gathered at a later date to assess the impact on teaching and learning. Line managers and senior leaders are able to utilise this information to make decisions for future training needs. Furthermore, Headteachers and governors can look at the overall picture and assess CPD outcomes. Overall, CPD is easy to record, easy to report on and the impact can be accurately measured with SchooliP.
