Hi, I posted the same thread in the SLT forum but got no responses so was hoping I could yield some reasonable advice and guidance from here! I've copied and pasted the same thread below: I'm starting a new school/sixth form in September and, unlike my previous school, it is overtly more challenging in respect to standards, attitude, behaviour and results. I will be the 'Lead' Deputy Head and Safeguarding/CP lead, primarily in charge of the SLT. There are 3 other deputy heads, each taking responsibility for KS3, KS4 and KS5, in union with the AHTs. At my prior school/sixth form, as DH / AHT I lead wholeschool T&L and behaviour. However, there were not many behavioural 'issues' or challenges per se and so, while I have experience, I would still like to seek some advice for this new role and what I should be prepared for. I hope to help make significant improve standards in the school/sixth form, and any advice or guidance would be much appreciated!
