We need to create learning organisations and my visits to schools recently have shown me once again that it is essential that leaders and teachers are involved in the co-construction of learning. I visit so many wonderful schools where peer learning activities give all staff, including headteachers, the opportunity to engage in professional dialogue about teaching and learning. This can only happen in a culture of high-trust and only if a headteacher is prepared to model teaching and learning to her colleagues.

Delegation and shared responsibility are also important. In successful schools, all staff and particularly school leaders, will model learning-focused leadership by constantly talking about learning and teaching. All staff should be seen as part of a learning team with golden threads that link them to the students and learners in the school. School leaders should aim to create a culture where all staff and students are learning from each other and teaching each other.
