It's a sad reflection on these fragmented times that the leaders, across the educational landscape, aren't all pulling in the same direction. Of course, I know that in today's crazy pressured world, school leaders are juggling multiple agendas and managing tight deadlines and there is barely time to talk, much less agree about a common purpose. It's challenging enough just keeping up with today's demands from governors, DfE and OFSTED!
In this strange world of Free Schools and Academies, where anyone can teach and anyone can be a school leader, the question is where are the great leaders; the Alec Clegg's, the Tim Brighouse's the Mick Waters' , the Steve Munby's? And more importantly, where is the system leadership; the glue that binds us around a common purpose, common aims and priorities, a commitment to excellence, to getting every child to reach their potential and to getting the best out of everyone in the team!
