We now conduct annual appraisals for all our staff. To improve efficiency and make sure that individual performance targets and CPD requirements link directly to the school improvement plan we use the online school improvement tool Bluewave Swift. If you would would like further information about this please feel free to contact Mrs Hoyle or Mrs Longley.
If you are a Leeds based school you might be interested to know that as Bluewave developed Swift in partnership with Education Leeds you are eligible for a 50% discount in your annual subscription. There's also a well established Swift user group in Leeds made up of school's at a variety of stages of implementation.
We've just done everyone's target setting for 2013/14 linking all the objectives to the professional standards and the school development plan. With the exception of the odd post-it note we don't have a single scrap of paper to show for it! It must have saved us hours of administrative work enabling us to focus more clearly on what we want to achieve, raising standards.
