Event description
School leadership in the pandemic – what can we learn from local and national responses to the crisis?

About this event

Chair/facilitator: Nick Brook, National Association of Head Teachers


This seminar will focus on findings and implications from two research projects into school and school leaders’ experiences of the pandemic. Both projects have revealed clear tensions between school level, local and national responses to the crisis, partly as a result of England’s centralised model of accountability coupled with fragmented local landscapes, which made decision-making unnecessarily difficult. Equally, responding to the crisis required schools to work in new ways, both with their immediate communities and with other schools and local partners, so there is scope for rich learning around how these new models might be built upon if we can articulate and embed the benefits. The seminar will include research presentations, a panel discussion and wider debate.
