Schools Of Excellence Podcast

May 12, 2022

May is an incredible time for reflection regardless of whether you run a 10-month or a 12-month academic school year. End-of-year reflections serve two important purposes - a gauge for determining how we can continuously improve on our processes and a reminder of the kind of mistakes we've made so that we can avoid making them in the subsequent years. The only way to have awareness of how far you've come is by being reflective of what you've done in the past academic year. 

In today's, from the archive, episode, I will take you through how to run an end-of-the-year staff meeting. I share with you some of the critical questions you should ask your staff, and how to use their feedback as a resource for future improvement. If you've been wanting to know how schools of excellence conduct their end-year staff meetings and why these meetings are usually very productive, this episode is for you!

Remember, part of being an educator and building a school of excellence is wanting to consistently get better. And understanding how to wrap up the year really well is important in ensuring that your September is set up for success. 

In a nutshell, I speak about:

  • The 3 reasons why an end-year review is so critical for your staff.
  • The top 5 questions you need to ask at your end-year staff meetings.
  • How to deduce meaningful information from the responses your staff give to the questions you ask.
  • Strategies for helping your teachers own their development, become more accountable and believe that they have what it takes to teach in a school of excellence.

...and so much more!
