How performance management helped one PE teacher achieve success Performance Management of teachers can have a positive impact in all sorts of areas of schools, as one PE teacher in Eastbourne discovers.
Jane Upton, PE teacher at Ratton School, is a hockey specialist, so when her school decided that developing girls’ football was an important target for keeping pupils actively engaged with the school, she had a two-fold challenge. But through the on-going performance management that the school emphasises, these two targets have brought improvements in both Jane’s own football skills as well as making the girls’ football a great success. There are 70 or so girls who now play competitively in teams and some have been invited to the Beckham Academy.
This film follows Jane and her head of department, Jay Chaundy, during what the school calls a KIT (Keep in Touch) day – when they review her targets and discuss the way forward.
