Team meetings allow objectives to be achieved, and they also allow for any problems to be discussed properly between all members of staff. By allowing staff to meet and talk about issues, it allows everybody to have their voice heard and ensures that everything within the school runs smoothly. This is all of course for the sake of the children, meaning that the benefit of team meetings in school is that the children get the best possible education due to good planning and discussion.

Here are some tips on how to have an effective team meeting;

  • Make yourself an agenda. During the team meeting somebody needs to state the agenda, and outline the points or topics that need to be talked about within the meeting. The agenda can be about discussing ideas, or resolving conflicts. It's important that everybody knows the agenda so they can get actively involved with the team meeting to sort the issues.
  • You also need to be sensitive of the time. Managers out there may use meetings to either grandstand or show off; they should in fact remember that there is only a limited amount of time available for the meetings. This means time is best spent actually discussing the issues with everybody.
  • Somebody should be assigned to take notes. A common mistake made during meetings is that there is often no agreement for someone to take notes. This means that nobody remembers what happened in the last meeting. To be able to progress with further meetings and implement what was discussed, notes or minutes really do need to be taken. Ensure that the notes are the distributed to everybody during the next team meeting.
