CPD Leaders in Primary Schools – Worth Primary School

An individual approach to CPD at primary level CPD at Worth Primary School in Cheshire meets the needs of staff individually. Headteacher Peter Taylor says, ‘One of the things we say in our organisation is: it doesn’t matter what colour the cat is so long as it catches mice; it’s one of my favourite sayings and I don’t have a doctrinaire view of professional development. We deliver a targeted approach because we know everyone has different needs. So it’s about finding out what they need and how to deliver it’. Through audits, performance coaching and performance management, whole-school and individual training needs are highlighted; once these needs are identified, training is given accordingly. In this programme we meet some of the staff on whom this method of CPD is having a positive effect.
