Question for Middlemarch

    Hi, you always give good and straightforward advice, I have a quick question:
    What is the criteria to enable me to move onto UPS2? Is it two successful performance management cycles or is there more discretion allowed from the head teacher?
    Thank you, Greta

    I'm not middlemarch, but can give an answer.... Moving to ups not only involves 2 satisfactory PM reviews but a good overall performance during those years as well. You also need to be continuing to meet the post threshold standards as well. So basically:

    - 2 satisfactory pm reviews
    - good overall performance in addition
    - meeting post threshold standards

    Hope this helps and hope MM doesn't mind!

    Thank you for your reply. I guess MM is pretty busy this week. So the satisfactory PM cycles (as well as good performance) are an absolute must? Sorry to be pedantic but need to make absolutely sure.
    Thanks again.

    Sorry about that! I've been one of the victims this week of the troll who keeps locking out various TES posters' accounts and so have been on only sporadically.

    Yes, as has already been said by mickey, the 2 PM cycles are an absolute must, plus meeting the post-threshold standards and good overall performance. I'm guessing it's not your performance we're talking about here...?

    No, my performance is good. It's the unacheivable (and out of my control) PM targets I have been given that have been deemed failed. Shouldn't have accepted the targets in the first place.

    Forgot to say - thank you MM
