Appraisals

Hi Melba

 

We have been told that Supervisions are a must but they are not the same as an appraisal so appraisals still need to be carried out. As my setting is new, Supervisions are carried out every term and I intend to carry out appraisals annually. Hope this helps :)

Well I had begun to wonder whether or not to do both. I prefer the supervisions and I do try and give a fair bit of feedback, but some questions from Appraisal are not asked at the supervision. So may make the summer term the appraisally/supervision one!

I'm same as Panders - it just means with the frequency of 1:1 meetings, what ever name you give them, we get through them quicker now! I do also as a committee setting give the staff of having a meeting with the Chairperson for the appraisal - not that anyone has ever taken up the offer.

Have to acknowledge that this is not my work - but hope it helps!

 

I'm so impressed that you still have a development worker - none of that support here now - well not unless we are prepared to stump up something like £700.00 for three visits :o not bloomin' likely - if I had a spare £700.00 (which i don't) I would put to much better use! :ph34r: Apologies to any advisers! :D

Very good Sunnyday, thank you for that. Nothing like the one I use!!! My SIP suggested using the one for Every Child a Talker, which I have done quite successfully, and then we complete another format during the chat afterwards.

In eyfs requirements since sept 2014, we no longer do them as we feel (my staff and I) that supervision done 6 times during the year is adequate and more beneficial than a yearly appraisal and supervision has to be done

Pleased to see a couple of others are only doing supervisions termly, we tried the half termly, but seemed to just go over same things for the sake of it, if a problem comes up I intend to do an individual meet with that staff member sooner, and fitting them in was a nightmare, they started in our area as 'supervision to safeguard' meetings but I wouldn't want (and know they wouldn't) wait till their next supervision to raise a concern.

Out of interest is anyone still doing appraisals?. Personally I still like appraisals as a way of planning the year ahead (staff development needs, training plan, budgets etc)and looking back at the year behind. I see this as different from supervisions, I suppose a bit like formative v summative. Both have a function that is interconnected but different.

 

Just me then?

we are making our last supervision a bit more formal and calling it appraisal, we do look at training needs/wants at supervision, so my intention with the last meeting of the year will be to discuss anything that wasn't done, ask if all happy with existing hours of employment, how they see their role developing, we recently started peer obs so i want to know their thoughts on them and whether they have improved their practice in response to areas identified (seem to have gone ok, but as manager i didn't see the paperwork they completed on each other, only a brief evaluation from their follow up meetings with each other, not sure if this is what other managers do).

We still do both supervisions and appraisals. In my humble ......

Supervisions give a chance to discuss the staff member's general well-being, progress on their personal development plan and a chance to review their key children.

Appraisals help to celebrate the achievements of the previous year and agree a personal development plan for the year ahead, based on the person's own development needs and the setting development plans.

SUPERVISION & MATTERS ARISING RECORD.docThis is what I use - we have regular supervisions but we also have matters that arise that have to be dealt with before the next supervision so we put it all in one form.

 

We also do yearly Appraisals that pull together staff feedback forms and supervisions too.

Someone put some good appraisal / coaching / mentoring stuff on here somewhere recently (very specific I know!)

 

As said appraisals and supervisions are different. We do both. Obs once a term, supervisions half termly and at every other one review appraisal targets too.
