    I'm a new HoD and have a meeting with SLT next week to discuss my performance management targets.

    Could I please ask for the kind of targets/examples of targets that you set for yourself as HoD?

    Many thanks!

    When I became HoD by internal promotion (so therefore knew the dept reasonably well) I discussed what we wanted to do with the team, devised a development plan that responded to that and to whole-school goals, and then set that up as my targets for the next term, year and 3 years. I think that's what we'd all do - set targets that reflect the way we intend to develop the department.

    The targets I was set tended to be in three categories. They were a) results across the department, b) results for my teaching group (s) and c) a departmental development target. I had a lot of flexibility in setting the first two targets - departmental results would be based on either A level or GCSE depending on which area was the priority that year, personal results were based on a group or groups of my choice (in Science we usually taught multiple Yr 11 groups each year) and the departmental target would be an area of curriculum that we would be looking to overhaul that year either linked to the whole school development plan or the departmental development plan.
