SLT/TLR Leadership Event
On Saturday 28th February 2015, senior leaders, along with middle leaders, took part in a leadership event to explore the key role leaders play in school and how this will impact on the our journey to becoming an outstanding school .
The day consisted of various workshops led by Mr Moore (Headteacher) and Mrs Terry (Deputy).
Session one: “Exploring Communication Models”
Session Summary: This workshop focuses on using creative art media to express and demonstrate a model of what “good communication” looks and feels like. The session is based on the work of “Gesthalt” a play therapy guru. We will hopefully then clarify, as a team, what we wish to strive for in terms of embedding an effective vision for communication in our future as an outstanding school.
Session Two: “Self-assessment and discussion”
This session is aimed at allowing TLR’s the opportunity to reflect around the role, its demands, challenges and roles. We will start with a self-analysis exercise and then generate our own questions to explore and analyse the key role we have in school.
Session Three: “Transactional Analysis”
Looking at Berne’s theory, we will explore the situational application of this approach to leadership dialogue in challenging circumstances to achieve a consistent and healthy state of professional balance.
