Annual performance management/appraisal

Requirements for a Principal's Appraisal [.pdf]

The Principal Performance Agreement template examples for primary, area and secondary school principals have been developed in consultation with education sector group representatives. These are designed as examples that illustrate how performance agreement and summary report requirements can be recorded.  Please feel free to amend the template to reflect your processes as they meet the requirements. Guidelines to support your use and show how to align the Standards for the Teaching Profession with the Professional Standards are included. This template is soon to be updated to reflect the new standards.
