Appraisals at ATLP

Our appraisal system focuses on supporting our employees to be the very best they can be so they can support the school/service to achieve its priorities. There are no set targets and we work on the assumption that everyone will be successful. We put staff at the heart of what we do so they can put children at the heart of what they do.
