We are very aware that many head teachers put their own professional development and support systems very low on the list of school priorities. We are also fully aware that this is a false economy and that without regular time for reflection and collaboration with other senior leaders, head teachers can feel very isolated and vulnerable in a role that becomes more complex every year.
For the last 3 years we have been offering a once-a-term day to groups of head teachers. Each day is designed to stand-alone, but the intention is that HTs commit to all three events as this builds great networking and collaboration which becomes a fantastic support mechanism. The value of these sessions is evidenced by the fact that our existing groups return year after year.
The structure of the days is that we do a 'hot off the press' session summarising the latest national issues, give HTs the chance to offload current challenges and share possible solutions and then have some professional development input based on our latest professional reading or areas that different groups have identified as useful to them in their context. The overview is the current plan, but as the year progresses, if other priorities emerge, we will build those in.
