An exclusive summit for primary leaders
As we face the daily challenges of leading a school, it can be difficult to focus as much as we would like on the vision for the future. With ever growing ‘to-do’ lists and the daily job of managing activities across our school or schools, it can be difficult to find the time to focus on that vision that we want to embody and deliver for our team, our pupils and our communities.
Through the issues of shrinking resources, the pressures of balancing accountability against a rich curriculum and our responsibilities for the wellbeing of our pupils, our colleagues and ourselves, maintaining strong principles and staying true to our purpose as leaders is becoming increasingly difficult.
Principles, purpose and impact – leading in challenging times, offers a unique opportunity to hear from primary education specialists and practitioners, to share ideas on how to address the challenges ahead and to design solutions which will be directed to government and other key stakeholders in primary education policy.
Topics will include:
Principled leadership in challenging contexts
Providing a high quality education on a shrinking budget
Squaring the circle: delivering a broad, rich, deep curriculum while still preparing children for SATs
Safeguarding the long-term future of your school in an increasingly academised landscape
Ensuring pupil and staff wellbeing (and your own!)
