Lewisham Leadership Forum

Lewisham Leadership Forum

A cross phase forum for Lewisham's School Leaders to work together to ensure the best support for our schools and our children's learning. 

The Lewisham Leadership Forum aims to represent an ‘all-schools perspective’ at a range of Local Authority working groups. As a Forum we seek to represent views, which enable strategic decisions to be taken in the best interests of all children.

Equity of opportunity, which could mean an inequitable distribution of resources, is the driving principle that allows decisions for children’s specific needs to be met. Not all children have the same needs, so good decision making is often about creating the appropriate diversity to meet their needs. Our forum is committed to partnership working, to which end, good communication is key.

  • To represent the interests of schools through direct consultation between leaders and the Executive Director or his/her representatives. 
  • To provide an interface, between schools and the Local Authority (LA), through which issues can be clarified and, whenever possible, resolved to their mutual satisfaction.
  • To represent the interests of schools through consultation with the Department for Education (DfE), its agencies and other national bodies.
  • To provide a network of information and support for leaders in Lewisham with termly horizon scanning briefings.
  • To promote the professional development of leaders at all levels, and those aspiring to leadership.
  • To promote partnership working between nursery, primary, secondary and special schools.
  • To conduct all business and activities in the spirit of openness and partnership.
