Staff Coaching

The central aim of coaching at EBS is to improve teaching & learning throughout the school by supporting staff and developing a confident, self reliant, creative staff body.

There are two main aspects to the role of coaching within the school. First, coaching will be used to provide the school with an alternative route for tackling whole school issues (e.g. embedding assessment for learning in teaching). Line managers will be able to guide teachers toward a coach who can help to develop that member of staff in a non-judgemental environment. In this way the role of coaching can be allied with the professional development programme already running within the school.

Second, coaching is a way of the school demonstrably giving something back to the staff. It is an investment in individuals. Coaching should act as an effective support mechanism for staff within the school. A key role of the Coaching Faculty would be to tap into the enormous skills base and potential of the staff at EBS. All staff at EBS are committed to the school and work extremely hard; coaching is a way of the school demonstrably giving something back to the staff.

Aim

Coaching is a non-judgemental conversation designed to empower the participant. The aim is to allow the coachee to take ownership of the key aspects of their work, the strengths, the blocks and any solutions.

Style

A coaching conversation focuses on the coachee. The coachee makes the decisions about the ideas that will be discussed. The role of the coach is to listen and reflect. In doing so it is hoped that the coachee will gain new insight into areas that interest them and be able to develop strategies on which they can focus.

Coaching conversations are non-judgemental.

Performance Management

Coaching meetings are highly confidential. The coachee ‘owns’ the contents of any meeting; if they wish to discuss the conversation outside the meeting they are at liberty to do so. However, the coach will never divulge what was discussed outside the confines of the coaching conversation. Any positives that are generated can, of course, feed into the performance management process and CPD (Continuous Professional Development).

Being Coached

There are several routes. A member of staff may ask their line /performance manager to approach one of the coaching team to request coaching on their behalf. A member of staff may themselves approach a member of the coaching team. A line / performance manager may suggest coaching as part of the CPD of any member of staff. Coaching often offered as support to other training programmes such as ‘Leading from the Middle’.

Coaching would benefit…

  • Staff new to the school. Coaching allows you to discuss issues and anxieties in a confidential setting, separate from any assessment process.
  • Staff new to post. Again, coaching will allow someone to discuss issues and anxieties in a confidential setting, separate from the performance management process.
  • Staff wishing to resolve develop their skills within their current role. Coaching is an excellent tool for expanding your thoughts, ideas and horizons. It allows you to investigate a range of possible solutions and select the most appropriate for yourself.
  • Staff wishing to resolve issues and blocks within their current role; see above.

Frequency

It can be one meeting, it can be many more. The average figure is approximately 4-6 meetings in a cycle of coaching.

Coaching meetings are highly confidential. The coachee ‘owns’ the contents of any meeting; if they wish to discuss the conversation outside the meeting they are at liberty to do so. However, the coach will never divulge what was discussed outside the confines of the coaching conversation. Any positives that are generated can, of course, feed into the performance management process and CPD (Continuous Professional Development).

Staff Leadership

As a Leadership Partnership School, we specialise in developing the skills of all our students and staff. The Headteacher is a National Leader of Education, and personally trains all members of staff seeking promotions to senior positions. She also runs a special programme for Sixth Form students to develop their leadership skills, and mentors other Headteachers, as well as NPQH candidates.

We believe that all teachers are leaders and that developing their leadership skills will also improve their capacity to deliver effective and inspiring lessons. We also know that these skills are essential for students to be successful in their future careers and life in general; hence why we place so much emphasis on this aspect of their education.

  • Leadership Partnership StatusOur application for this status included programmes for the development of students and staff, both at East Barnet and in other schools. We have offered these programmes for the past two years and they have been attended by hundreds of teachers and students. At least 20 EBS members of staff have gained promotions as a consequence of these programmes, and teachers from other schools have commented extremely favourably about them.
  • Promoting StaffWe believe in distributed leadership as a mechanism of putting authority and responsibility in the hands of many, rather than just a few. Besides the Headteacher, we currently distribute senior leadership roles to three Associate Deputy Headteachers, and twelve Assistant Headteachers, who have substantive roles as Heads of Year/Faculty as well as some whole school responsibilities.
  • Performance ManagementYes. It is part of the school’s philosophy that all members of staff should have their work reviewed during the year. An initial meeting with the Performance Manager takes place early in the Autumn Term to review the work of the previous year and set targets for the new year. Feedback indicates that almost all members of staff find this a really helpful process for reflecting on their work.
