Performance and development is about creating a culture of teacher quality, feedback and growth for all teachers within all schools.
Teaching staff and non-teaching staff both uses a similar process for performance development. Essentially there are three phases: Plan, Implement, Review. Each phases is informed by reflection so the process is essentially a cycle of action and reflection.
A Performance and Development Plan (PDP) is used to record individual teacher's annual performance and development process. Teachers can complete their PDP online using the following link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PDP_2017 or download the word version here (DOC 106.33 KB). Follow this link for further resources to support the performance and development process.

Part 2: Putting it into practice - Yearly Planner
This document outlines how we can meet the responsibilities of our roles and expected standards by doing our jobs. This is a yearly planner to help keep us on track. This document will be adapted and modified as we find what works best in our school.
What about 'under performance'?
The under performance of staff may become apparent as part of the performance and development cycle. However, the process for addressing underperformance is separate from performance and development process and is addressed via the NSW Conduct and Performance Directorate.
