The governing board has a duty to appoint an external adviser to advise and support in relation to the appraisal of the headteacher. An ODBE adviser will facilitate the process and offer professional guidance. Appraisal advice is an additional service which can be purchased.
"It calls on a very particular sensitivity and skill to provide rigorous challenge underpinned by a foundation of personal support so the person clearly understands the need for improvement whilst knowing they are also being held upright.
You provided this today and we will all benefit. "

Stage 1: Preparation
Stage 2: Three separate meetings of approximately 1 hour each Headteacher and ODBE Adviser meeting Panel and Adviser meeting Review meeting with the review panel, headteacher and adviser chaired by a panel member
