Understanding and Using Performance Related Pay (PRP)

Governors' Workshop


This focused workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to make performance related pay (PRP) decisions according to the PRP system introduced in September 2014. This workshop has been updated to reflect the revised teachers' pay and conditions for maintained schools for 2016.

This is part of a series of workshops, others include:

Joining or forming a multi-academy trust (MAT)

Improving Financial Efficiencies in Schools

Pupil Premium - making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged pupils

Understanding and Using Data - analysing your school's performance

New to Governance - your role and responsibilities 

Suitable For

The workshop is suitable for all school governors who want to further develop their understanding of key school governance processes and systems.

This training will help you to develop your skills; enabling you to effectively contribute to the three core functions of governance required of all school and academy boards:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.


Three hours.
