Appraisal Policy

Dec 3, 2023

Education [Early Childhood Centres] Regulations 2008: Subpart 2 47 (1e)

Appraisal is about developing confidence and knowledge in our teachers so that they are better prepared to meet the daily demands that our Centre Kaupapa, Job description, legislative requirements and the recertification of their Teaching Practice certificate demand.  They will be supported through Quality Learning Cycles which will demonstrate how they meet the New Zealand Teachers Council Teaching Standards or Paerewa.  This will create inclusive, collaborative teacher learning  and will advance the relationship between teacher professional practice and outcomes for learners.


The Directors of Early Childhood on Stafford will ensure that all Teachers are:

  • Involved in ongoing training and development including course participation (online and/or in person), centre visits, readings, discussions, and peer to peer support.
  • Given both formal and informal opportunities for feedback on their professional practice.

Appraisal Requirements

  • All employees will be active participants in an annual appraisal process.
  • Appraisal will be completed through a process of Self Appraisal / Director Discussion and "on the job discussion"
  • A written record of all appraisals and meetings will be completed which include goals for further professional development and/or ongoing training.
  • Copies of all appraisal reports are confidential to individuals and the Directors and will be held in individual files.
  • Appraisals will be undertaken at least annually.
  • A record of the professional development that staff have undertaken will be available on Safety Monitor and reported in newsletters
