What is your advice about? Senior Leaders

1: Senior leaders have to make decisions for the whole school. Sometimes they can seem a little nuts in isolation.

2: Talk to your senior leaders and ask them to explain why a decision has been made. If they can’t answer be concerned.

3: It is VERY easy to criticise decisions you have not had to make. But if they don’t work let the senior leaders know why.

4: Some people just hate senior leaders. They are an easy target so try to have an open mind and let actions speak rather than history.

5: Aspire to do the SLT job better than you think it is being done. Be realistic about this.
