Research clearly shows that leadership matters...
School leaders set the tone, establish the learning climate, create a culture of professional co-operation and collaboration between colleagues, are key to morale and job satisfaction and their actions determine the nature of the relationships in the school.
Someone asked me the other day what makes a good school. Successful schools are happy places, healthy places, safe places, places which are rigorous in terms of their focus on standards, on tracking, on the powerful and intelligent use of data and places where every child matters and no child gets left behind. To build brilliant schools we need to continue to coach, nurture and develop:
  • inspirational, passionate distributed leadership;
  • brilliant teaching by talented colleagues;
  • a coaching and nurturing culture;
  • an engaging, powerful and stimulating curriculum;
  • wonderful learning environments;
  • brilliant learning;
  • high expectations of children and colleagues;
  • positive and constructive relationships;
  • parents and carers as partners in learning.
Easy really!
