Leadership Inquiry Question - How do Senior Leaders increase leadership capital throughout an organisation?

All educational leaders face the same challenge: too much to do and not enough time to do it. This PLC will explore the concept of leadership capital and how schools look to increase organisational leadership capital in ever-changing and uncertain times. Stage one of the PLC will invite participants to consider specific ways that leaders can invest and build their leadership capital and that of their organisation. Participants will be supported in assessing whether they are using leadership capital wisely and will consider how to reallocate leadership capital and change both their behaviours and the behaviours of leaders across the organisation in order to improve performance.

26th January & 10th March Term 2

Leadership Inquiry Question - How do Senior Leaders build their organisation around cultural proficiency?

School leaders must focus on creating work environments that inspire effective teaching and teacher satisfaction. A strong, vibrant professional culture, in any school, influences both continual professional improvement and, ultimately, pupil outcomes. Therefore, a key priority for school leaders must be the continual development of a professional culture that focus on increasing capacity. How do school leaders evaluate the strength and vibrancy of their professional culture and identify the appropriate next steps for improvement?.

27th April & 17th June Term 3

Leadership Inquiry Question - How do Senior Leaders ensure consistency around successful teaching and learning?

Consistency, high expectations and high standards are not an ideal but rather a necessity and the drive to achieve these components should be led by highly skilled, knowledgeable and confident leaders. This PLC will support participants in how they increase staff’s knowledge and understanding of greater depth teaching and learning and will seek to increase an individual’s confidence in leading highly effective and rigorous professional learning experiences. Ensuring every teacher and teaching assistants are working from, and holding themselves accountable to an agreed set of pedagogical principles for highly-effective teaching and learning must be a priority before introducing the next new initiative.
