The importance of a “Department… Guide for Dummies”

The complexity of a well run department is hard to encapsulate in a quick meeting or inspection. You can be ready to show all that you do with a version of the famous guide books, but in this case, with what you are as a department. You can allocate a maximum of one page and have this ready for any visitors, or even, a quick guide for your headteacher or any new teachers for them to understand the vision and philosophy of the department. Although every department has its own priorities, strengths and systems, ensure these are part of your guide: About us. As experienced Middle Leaders we were tired of seeing all the resources and CPD out there for senior leaders and classroom teachers with nothing for us.

Research shows that the best strategies are the ones that remove the barriers instead of raising the drive but too many times some of the barriers are outside the school’s sphere of control.
