|Support for New Heads||| Print ||
We recognise that the move to headship is both daunting and exciting. Whilst there are many programmes available for new headteachers, our experience tells us that in order to be highly effective, programmes need to be bespoke and meet the needs of the headtacher in their context. New headteachers bring diverse experiences (and worries) to their post. These need to be unpicked and systematically worked through to enable you to realise your potential as a head as quickly as possible.
We have outlined a menu of possible choices for new headteachers to chose from – however, you should view this as a starting point rather than a definitive guide. If you would like to talk through how we might help you, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Packages to support new headteachers can be just that; or a package of support which includes development with the wider staff team.
Just wanted to let you know that our OFSTED went well, all teaching good or outstanding and good for all areas. The Lead Inspector was impressed with our curriculum and recognised many of the Focus docs that we use. We need to raise the number of level 5s in writing in order to get outstanding. She said we will do this if we continue to work with you and your team !!!
Thanks for all of your support and encouragement-your visit gave us all so much more confidence and self-belief!! Headteacher, St Helens
