In September 2021 we launch Different Doors, our Trauma-Informed Leadership Programme. Led by consultant headteacher Siobhan Collingwood, Different Doors puts mental health and wellbeing at the heart of all that you do. In this post Siobhan makes the case for why the old ways no longer open new doors and that schools need to be ready to be better.
Sometimes its good to stand still. Especially at the moment with all the chaos that is going on. In this post, we encourage school leaders to have the confidence to drop the anchor in order to take stock.
Being a leader can sometimes be a lonely job. When you think about it though, it really ought not to be. Nobody leads in isolation, on their own or in a team of one. We all operate within the world of leadership teams, governing bodies, sub-committees and the like.
