Immersive School Improvement
Get expert help with diagnosing and fixing any obstacles to success
In schools, everything and everyone is connected, and that change in one area can have unintended consequences in another.
Sometimes, real and lasting change is best achieved over a longer period of time, and would benefit from a fresh pair of eyes to look at key issues and join the dots.
If this is the case for you, I would work with you to plan a programme of activities, which would allow me to really get ‘under the skin’ of a school, and inform recommendations and ensure they are incorporated in the school's strategic and financial planning. Examples of activities I have undertaken in this type of role include:
1:1 and group discussions with staff and students
Participation in daily operations such as duty and ‘on call’ rotas, detentions, attendance monitoring etc.
Analysis of performance, attendance and behaviour data.
Attendance at SLT and other meetings.
Establishment and leadership/co-leadership of task & finish working parties – e.g. curriculum review, improving teaching and learning, rollout of reading / writing programmes.
