Are you honestly in slt ?

Discussion in 'Senior Leadership Team' started by tjhart, Feb 7, 2012.

  1. Lost the meaning? I am recently on the extended leadership team as I believed I would have a bigger impact on children's lives. Nobody talks about children. The meetings inc discussions around the layouts of strategic plans and how we will ensure that students state their level to the visiting inspectors. Redundancies and depts to bash are on the agenda. I feel sad. Is it possible to make an impact here, for the sake of our youngsters, or should I return to the classroom and touch the ones I see. X

    At least in the classroom you have control to a certain extent.

    probably because we're all tired of the let's slag slt off threads on TES forums.
    I've worked in 6 schools and most of the slt I've worked with have been very good and totally committed to the children. Having just completed a 13 hour day in school (my second this week) because I've been dealing with issues directly affecting children. I find the insinuation that I'm not in it for the children quite insulting.
