The role of a senior leader is to provide genuine leadership.This will enable colleagues to feel supported and allow them to display confidence in their role. As a leader, you are responsible for creating an environment for young people to succeed and access their chosen pathway.  A good way to consider the work of a highly effective senior leader is to think like an architect. This profession is characterised by planning, design and implementation. This means that the leader must remain in post long enough to see through the changes that they have made.

Staff are a very expensive resources and their development must be a priority. Having a robust appraisal system is an important means of monitoring their performance. Also, it serves as a means to high development opportunities. Your own appraisal is an opportunity for you to map out your intentions to gather whole school experience. However, this must not be to the detriment of the school. Your own personal ambitions must be correlated to the work you are undertaking. This synergy will ensure that staff, students and you all benefit which is highly desirable. Success of this nature will mean you build a profile that will enable you to further your career and reach the pinnacle.
