Trusted by Teachers and Principals Throughout NZ

"This is our first year using the School Performance Management System and we are wishing that we started using it earlier! It provides our teachers with an easy way to provide evidence that they are meeting the Education Council Standards. This is made simple and meaningful with the 'linking' option. Read More... Teachers are able to add links directly to documents such as planning, videos or other resources. It is cutting down the paperwork and helping our staff to track important documents such as their ongoing personal inquiries."

Tom Clarkson (Acting DP), Manurewa Intermediate

"We are in to our second year of using the appraisal portfolio and confidently recommend it. It is user-friendly and is an 'easy to follow' way to ensure all bases are covered in an appraisal programme. Extra responsibilities for unit holders and individual performance objectives are easily added with your own objectives and evidence. Read More... My staff enjoy the ease of attaching documents, linking to video and other resources which means they are not spending hours of time typing in evidence. They can quickly link directly to their planning and inquiry work which saves lots of time. The portfolio quickly builds to a robust document which not only evidences all necessary objectives to satisfy the requirement of teacher registration, but provides a wonderful overview of individual professional growth and development."

Roger Goulstone Principal, Valley School Pukekohe

"This is our second year of using the Performance Appraisal Portfolio. We have been learning how to best utilise the features of the portfolio and have found it a simple process to record reflections and show evidence of teacher performance in practising standards and in the more specific agreed areas of performance. Read More... As a tool to support records of progress, development and involvement it is a vast improvement on what we had previously established ourselves within the Google Doc’s framework. Due to the ease of use we will be using mentor and peer support teachers to assist each other in reflective practice, which has been easy to set up within the framework of the online template."

Andrew Morgan, Principal

Frequently Asked Questions

Tap headings to view answers

Why do I need to keep a portfolio when I know I have all my files for teaching?

By keeping a portfolio you are providing proof of your professional reflection in relation to the standards and a record that you are thinking about your professional learning and accountability.

How can I use my portfolio?

Your portfolio can be used for a range of purposes;

  • Evidence for your appraisal,
  • Evidence to support renewal of your Practising Certificate,
  • A document to support application for new appointments,
  • A record of teaching and learning,
  • Archived resources for future reference.
Does the Education Council ask for these portfolios?

A random ten percent of registration renewals will have their portfolios requested by the Education Council.

What do I need to show in my portfolio?

The information you include should be sufficient enough to meet your requirements for Appraisal and Registration. This can reflect:

  • Assessment information,
  • Planning information,
  • Student / Parent voice,
  • Professional Learning and Development resources,
  • Inquiry Learning resources,
  • Teaching as Inquiry reflections,
  • Self Reflection material,
  • Resources / Readings,
  • Images / Video of classroom events.
Do you support the Catholic Elaborations of the Education Council Standards?

Yes, there is a special template for teachers in Catholic schools. It is the same as the normal teacher template with the addition of the Catholic Elaborations.

Who is responsible for deciding what I should focus on?

This should be done in conjunction with your appraiser when setting up goals for the year. These should reflect the school process and focuses reflecting charter goals.

What should I do with my evidence?

You should keep a cumulative record of your evidence that provides enough information for your appraiser to be able to endorse your professional practice and for attestation for your Practising Certificate renewal.

Does the reflection I am doing as part of my Teaching as Inquiry help?

Yes, the components of your Teaching as Inquiry reflection make a good link for your Appraisal and Practising Certificate needs. Many schools have focused their professional learning on the Teaching as Inquiry process.

Who can view my evidence portfolio?

Only users in the system who are listed as administrators for your school. Who these are will be decided by your particular school. Your portfolio may also be seen by administrators of any Groups you belong to in the system. Groups are an optional part of School Performance Management and are also managed by your school.

What happens if I leave my current school?

If your new school also uses School Performance Management, your account can be moved to them. If not, your account can be placed in a special entity so that you can still access it and work on it. You will be responsible for your yearly subscription fee that your old school was paying on your behalf. We encourage you to introduce your new school to School Performance Management. We're happy to answer any questions they might have about the service.
