Headteacher Performance Management

Register interest


With a key inspection focus on the quality of the curriculum the scope of peer reviews is being extended to include senior leaders and middle leaders with a focus on one theme that the school identifies as a strength. Themes may be taken but not exclusively from this list:

  • Education recovery curriculum
  • Wider curriculum subjects
  • Catch up/intervention
  • Blended and remote learning
  • Core curriculum, especially reading
  • Personal development
  • Behaviour

Option 1

This will involve an initial ½ day’s training for the schools involved.

The peer review involves working in a triad of schools facilitated by a school improvement consultant. Each review takes 1 ½ days of contact time for reviewers and the host school (and an additional ½ day for the consultant to prepare/write the report.)

Scheduling the dates and along with other related admin tasks are undertaken by each host school in turn.

A spreadsheet of validated good practice will be maintained by the facilitators and shared with the LA’s school improvement team and the CPD manager of Lilla Huset. At the end of each peer review the host school will be invited to create a ten-minute MP4 file, outlining the effectiveness of the chosen theme, along with how this was achieved.

The cost is £1,400 per review. This includes two days of facilitated support and initial training.

Option 2

This a lighter touch option bespoke to schools familiar with peer review process where the format and extent of the peer review is negotiated and agreed with a school improvement consultant. This is to encourage innovative and sustainable approaches to school development through peer-to-peer networking.

The cost is £350 per ½ day. The full cost of each review will depend upon the level of support provided.

Key Benefits

The peer review process has five clear benefits to schools:


It is good practice for schools to engage with a new triad of schools for each round of reviews. This way, visiting schools benefit from seeing new ‘best practice’ with fresh eyes.
