Aspiring Principals & School Leaders

  2. 2. Too much innovation<br />“One of the most critical problems our schools face is not resistance to innovation but the fragmentation, overload and incoherence resulting from the uncritical and uncoordinated acceptance of too many different innovations”<br />Fullan & Stiegelbauer, 1991<br />
  3. 3. Almost Everything Works<br />95% of all things we do have a positive achievement on education<br />When teachers claim they are having a positive effect on achievement or when a policy improves achievement, this is almost a trivial claim: virtually everything works<br />

  11. 11. Primary School Vision<br /> At this school we provide a positive, caring, nurturing and stimulating environment inside and outside the classroom. Our children are encouraged to try new and different activities and to explore boundaries within safe limits. They have fun and enjoy working both independently and as part of a team.<br /> We are open to the views and opinions of every member of our school community. We invite and value their ideas. We take time to listen and communicate with each other in a respectful and open manner. This creates a rich culture of quick, effective feedback. In this way everybody feels valued and we pull together to support each other. We recognise and praise each other’s achievements in an informal way. <br /> The right to learn is respected allowing every child, including our special needs and gifted and talented children, to develop to their full potential. Every member of our learning community sets achievable goals and receives regular and positive feedback. We have high expectations for behaviour and have a behaviour management system that creates a calm environment where issues are dealt with fairly and consistently.<br />
  12. 12. Teaching and Learning Vision<br />At RMGS we create critical, reflective and independent learners for life through a learning community which provides a secure and challenging environment. <br /> <br /> We believe deep learning is facilitated through outstanding teaching and occurs when all learners are actively engaged in a variety of tasks, taking responsibility for their own learning and progress, collaborating and thinking with shared expectations of success.<br /> <br /> At RMGS through innovative learning strategies and positive relationships our students enjoy learning and achieve their full potential.<br />

  14. 14. Where do you want to go?<br />“Which road do I take?”<br />"Where do you want to go?”<br />"I don't know," Alice answered.<br />"Then,” said the cat, “it doesn't matter. If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.”<br />
  15. 15. Curriculum – national or local?<br />“The best schools design learning for their pupils and then cross check against the national expectations to see they have done right by the pupils in terms of the agreedentitlement for all the nation’s children. The attainment targets give a touchstone for the expected standards and that’s it.”<br />It doesn’t really matter what comes from government; how it is packaged, what it contains. In the end, the curriculum is the one that children in schools meet day in, day out.<br />Mick Waters, Curriculum Foundation<br />
