Episode Snapshot – Effective and Sustained Leadership in Challenging Environments
Kelly Long chats with Dave Smith headteacher of a school in one of England’s most deprived boroughs. For Dave, a good school is an upside down one, one that starts with the people in it – where they are, where they come from, what they bring into the classroom, what they bring to each lesson. It is this formula that has helped Dave’s school be in the top 300 performing schools for the last five years running, that led to not one but two ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspections and to Dave’s recent appointment as a National Leader in Education.
Together Kelly and Dave dive into how to create Effective and Sustained Leadership using three core principals:
