Research clearly shows that the leadership of schools can have a hugely positive impact on the educational outcomes of young people... but success is all about collaborative approaches and thinking team!
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... and most importantly create a team whose passion, enthusiasm and commitment will release the magic!

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 brilliant teams, developing:
  • inspirational, passionate and distributed leadership; 
  • brilliant teaching and learning driven by talented colleagues; 
  • a coaching and nurturing culture for adults and young people alike; 
  • a focus on character and skills as well as academic excellence; 
  • an engaging, powerful and stimulating curriculum offer; 
  • wonderful learning environments; 
  • high expectations of young people and colleagues; 
  • positive and constructive relationships; 
  • parents and carers as partners in learning. 
Together we must develop a toolkit of techniques, tips and strategies which can build brilliant learning in brilliant learning places to achieve extraordinary results. We need to continue to reflect, think, focus and stick to what really matters; leadership, vision, positive behaviour, discipline, focus, passion, engagement, creativity, partnerships, relationships, persistence, determination and hard work. We need to continue the conversations, build the relationships and the trust and not be distracted.
