More Supportive teacher standards
Over the last year we have been speaking with our client base about building a more developmental approach to professional standards. Based on your feedback we have tweaked our existing Perspective Professional Standards to make them more supportive and palatable to classroom teachers.
The change of grade set from OGRI (Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement, Inadequate) to MSNP (Major Strength, Strength, Needs Development, Priority for Development) has led to staff feeling more supported. As a result of this simple move away from ‘judgement-focussed’ language, staff have reportedly been more willing to embrace areas where they require support.
