My personal vision of a GREAT SCHOOL has been shaped over the last fifteen years in York, Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham and Lincoln by my visits to so many brilliant learning places where talented colleagues go that extra mile to release the magic. This isn't a headteacher thing but a whole school community thing where everyone has a shared vision that is deeply routed in the belief that all children and young people matter, are cared for 100% of the time and will achieve brilliant outcomes if they have the attitudes, skills and understanding. This doesn't of course mean that all children and young people will be learning the same things, in the same way, and at the same time. Schools must be centres of innovation, creativity and imagination where a commitment to equity, fairness and justice prepares children and young people for life and work in the global and conceptual society of the 21st century.
