Objectives should relate to the teacher’s role and position
A classroom teacher on the upper pay range (UPR) should be set objectives relating to the standards required for a UPR teacher.
These objectives should:
- Focus on priorities
- Be time-bound, challenging but achievable, and reflect the need for a satisfactory work/life balance
- Reflect any relevant team, year or whole-school objectives
- Reflect the teacher's experience and aspirations
Read more about how to write performance objectives in our other article.
Below, we've provided some example objectives for you to modify based on:
- The individual member of staff
- Your school's objectives
- Where on the pay scale the teacher sits (see the KeyDoc in the next section for help with this)
