Strategic Improvement of Attendance(Updated for September 2020)

(0)
An extensive resource that will support you in making wholesale improvements to levels of absence across your school. More than ever and especially from September when it is hoped that all students can return to school safely, the monitoring and tracking of attendance and student absence, becomes a key priority for Senior Leaders and Pastoral Staff. Having been a Deputy Head in a school which fell into SM because of poor attendance, I have hands on experience of what it takes to change the culture of school attendance which must include students and all stakeholders across the school. This pack is focused on sharing… A whole school Improvement Plan for Attendance - one I actually devised as part of our HMI monitoring. A whole school 12 page document on actions required to change the culture of attendance across your school, which I had written as part of my work when we were in SM. The document identifies the individual responsibilities of all staff, from form tutors through to senior leaders and Administrative support, to help raise the profile of improving levels of student absence. A Review document to work alongside your Action Plan to identify the evidence of improvement - real life examples added for you to use. This pack will compliment my other resource called Monitoring and Tracking School Attendance-Post Lockdown.

Middle Leader Training - Developing your Middle Leadership Teams

Middle Leaders are the real drivers of school improvement; they are the heartbeat and engine room of a school and we need to ensure they are fully supported. This 2 hour training session was delivered to the Middle Leadership Team across the Service, as a starting point for a real focus on their development and it was received very well by the team. The session initially focuses on the meaning of leadership and the characteristics of good middle leaders, alongside the difference between management and leadership. It then moves to focus on the role of the middle leader and expectations for their role in schools as well as potential training needs for further development. Feedback on the interactive session was very positive.
