The standards have been used to develop a suite of national professional qualification frameworks which are rooted in the best available evidence of leading a school.
The Ealing Headteacher appraisal guidance 2020/21 on EGfLwill be revised to reflect the new standards.
Where you have completed the headteacher performance management process for the year 2020, or it is currently ongoing, there is no expectation that this should be reviewed to reflect the revised headteachers’ standards.
In this transitional year we advise schools to engage with the 2020 headteachers’ standards as part of ongoing development conversations and to adopt them at the most appropriate point in the year.
Please note in light of COVID -19, for the appraisal process this year the DfE expect schools, ‘to use their discretion and take pragmatic steps, to adapt performance management and appraisal arrangements to take account of the current circumstances.’
More details can be found on the EGfL HT appraisal page.
