Performance Appraisal

Performance Appraisal



Performance appraisals still remain one of the most commonly-used tools for managing staff performance and, in the case of school teachers in maintained schools, the arrangements for operating a system of annual appraisal are prescribed by regulation.

The key purpose of appraisals is to provide employees with feedback on their performance at work. Although a formal appraisal meeting usually takes place only annually, to be effective it needs to operate in conjunction with a process of continuous feedback throughout the year. This is particularly important where the outcome of appraisal feeds into decisions about pay.
