Our pupils and students deserve good schools where they fulfill their potential. School leaders face a wide range of challenges to achieve this but the expertise to address these exists in schools within or beyond our own community. School leaders are best placed to drive effective school improvement. At different moments in time, schools will be in a position where they can provide support to their peers, formally or informally, or they need to access support from other schools to add capacity to address a specific priority. Schools are increasingly working with each other in this way as they continue on their journey of improvement – celebrating and sharing all that is effective and addressing the challenges together to the benefit the wider educational community and the life chances of our young people. This empowers leaders and their staff and gives schools a central role in developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system. To effectively implement this model we need to utilise every schools’ passion, intelligence and talents.
