HART Alliance Membership 2017-18



Next year's HART meetings have been designed to have maximum impact through focused support for schools particularly in light of uncertain school budgets over the next few years and the shortage of time colleagues have to concentrate on their leadership role.

Our meetings need to provide targeted support in the key elements of leadership and management including vital information on changing expectations and practical guidance and materials to help leaders during the school year. There needs to be opportunities for colleagues to work collaboratively to share their work load and schools need to receive focused CPD and practical support that gives value for money through maximum impact on their school's improvement when they spend time out of school.

We also need to find ways to provide simple and effective approaches that reduce unnecessary work load across our schools and provide opportunities for joint projects to tackle shared issues.

During this year at HART meetings we have been trying out different approaches and taking feedback from schools about emerging needs. This has led to the introduction of practical afternoon sessions that follow on from the morning's focused session. On some occasions staff joined their headteacher for the afternoon session and worked together on their school improvement with support from HART colleagues where required.

This approach to our meetings helps colleagues keep up to date, collaborate and spend their precious time out of school on their own school's priorities.

What will this look like?
