Event description

Description

This course is for Primary Phase Leaders and consists of four face to face training days starting on Monday 16th October and running throughout the year.

This course focuses on leaders having impact beyond their own classroom and influencing the teaching of others. It supports colleagues to grow and develop their leadership, increase their effectiveness and efficiency, and have the means to evaluate both the quality of their phase and their own leadership. The course provides leaders with a deeper understanding of the issues for their particular key stage and practical solutions to challenging problems. It builds knowledge of teaching and learning so that participants feel confident in leading developments.

Covered across the course are a number of themes:

  • Understanding phase leadership, including the demands of the role, whole school perspectives and Ofsted.

  • Influencing and developing the quality of teaching within a phase.

  • Undertaking school self-evaluation: book reviews, learning walks, lesson observations, developing stakeholder voice and unpicking data.

  • Creating and maintaining a vision and fully utilising an action plan.

  • Using emotional intelligence, and as part of this: Inspiring and motivating others; leading by example; holding others to account and having difficult conversations.

  • Personal efficiency and effectiveness – getting the day to day basics right.

  • Writing evaluative reports and presenting evidence of impact to others.

  • Understanding key national issues, e.g. most common cited issues by Ofsted; changes and development in assessment; policy changes.

  • The course culminates with a celebration to which headteachers / governors are invited.
