Proven strategies for excelling as a Senior Leader in your school
One of the signs of exceptional school leadership is the numbers of colleagues who go on to become school leaders themselves. As senior leaders it is our job to support middle leaders to develop the skills to become highly effective school leaders. At JMC we appreciate this a time consuming process for any Head or Deputy, which may mean you would appreciate some assistance in developing the leadership styles of your staff through training or coaching.
- Do you have a cohort of middle leaders who need training in school leadership?
- Why not train them in the art of school leadership all in one go?
- Are you looking to progress into the Senior Leadership Team and need some coaching to improve your applications?
- Do you want to understand the leadership qualities required for the role?
“Maintaining high-quality planning, preparation and marking while ensuring you fulfil other strategic and supporting roles, as well as the day-to-day business of helping to lead the school, can require skill, organisation and a persistent drive”.Laura Knight, Deputy Principal ,Rudheath Primary Academy ,Northwich
