Do an annual appraisal
Withernsea Primary School in Yorkshire uses a support staff appraisal form, which you can download using the link below and adapt for your own school.
Use the form to guide performance management for your caretaker(s). Ask staff to complete it before their review, and then use the points raised to discuss how they’ve met previous objectives, and to set new objectives for the year ahead.
- What has gone well this year?
- Is there anything we could do to help you develop your strengths further?
- Is there anything that you could have done better during the last year?
