How do I develop and use management systems to support and enhance student learning?
- As staff trustee I look through the school finances at our monthly meetings and am learning how to read the balance sheets and expenditures more carefully and with greater understanding. I have found that going through links on my NAPP programme has helped clarify ideas around staff banking and where school funding comes from. Obviously this may change with the new government proposals which are causing quite a stir amongst teachers and educationalists currently. As part of my own development and knowledge I need to stay informed and make sure I listen/read proposals from both sides Ministry and Union and make my own informed opinion.
- This year I have worked with my principal through staff appraisal and observations, following up with teachers who need support to strengthen their own practice. This has also involved ensuring teachers are completing requirements for Educanz registration.
