Excellence

I had a really useful day today run for QIOs by LTS, where we had a good discussion and look at Journey to Excellence materials.

I was particularly interested in a couple of things which I picked up from the presentations – a big shift in emphasis to a more bottom up approach where teachers are really being encouraged to lead and develop their approaches. The other thing which really lifted me was the explicit notion of Heads as officers of an EA where there is an expectation from HMIe that Heads have a corporate responsibility to share good practice with others and support other schools/Heads with knowledge/good practice etc.

Its so encouraging to hear this expressed as it fits with the way I see schools making real improvements in the future.

  1. I’m so glad to see that the bottom-up messages are turning into practice. It’s not just a good way for things to work. As we head (hurtle?) forwards with open technologies that allow people to do it their own way it’s the only way, the main expectation even, that organisations work in this manner. Good news!
