Appointing a new Head Teacher is probably the most important task that a governing body undertakes. There is a considerable body of evidence indicating that the quality of a school’s head teacher is the single most significant factor in its success. Appointing a high-quality head to lead teaching and learning in your school is something under the direct control of Governors that positively affects school improvement.
During this session we will be looking at:
- Steps in the Head Teacher recruitment process
- Defining your school’s needs
- Attracting the best candidates
AND considering the questions and actions governors can take to sustain effective leadership over time.
