This book is for headteachers, senior and middle managers in both primary and secondary schools, and all teachers involved in the performance management process. It sets out the aims and objectives of the system, and offers sensible, practical advice to help make performance management work effectively in schools.

Case studies are used to illustrate the processes involved in performance management, and each chapter ends with suggestions for staff discussions, looking at the common concerns and issues that arise.

Joan Dean has taught in primary, secondary and further education, and has held two headships. She has also been a primary schools adviser and a chief inspector, and has published more than thirty books on education. In 1980, she was awarded the OBE for services to education.


'Dean's many years of successful inspection experience shine through in the chapters on the training of staff, process review and the chapter on failing teachers. If you need guidance in these areas, or are looking for a handy source of well-referenced background intormation on issues relating to performance management, this is the book for you.' - Mike Sullivan, Times Educational Supplement
