Target Group: Deputy and Assistant Headteachers Time: 14.00 – 16.00
Date: 29 November 2016 (there is a second forum on 29th June 2017 that you must book for separately)
The purpose of the programme to:
- Develop the leadership skills and expertise of DHT and AHT as leaders in church schools and to provide opportunities for networking across the borough to share good practice in all aspects of school life across our diocesan schools;
- Focus on school effectiveness with key messages from inspection outcomes in SIAMS and OFSTED;
- Nurture the leadership potential of our DHT and AHT as part of our succession planning strategy for future headships
Each session will begin with a focus on what it means to be a leader in a church school and will include time for reflection and the opportunity to strengthen your own understanding of your role in school. We will focus on the Church of England’s vision for education, articulated through four basic elements of wisdom, hope, community and dignity.
New initiatives will be tabled as requested by the forum. It is hoped that between meetings, senior leaders will network in clusters to extend the work started at the forum and that over time, forum members will shape the agenda of the meetings.
