Primary SLT structure help

    Hi all, I am new to a school this term which is currently looking at my school becoming an academy. However I have been told the current structure will need to be reviewed of my SLT. Currently just myself and DHT, at the moment; but I will need to expand SLT. I have some ideas.

    Was just wondering for any Primary Heads out there with academy status, could you give us info about your SLT structure? Do any of you have any documents outlining roles and responsibilities?

    Thanks in advance

    So, how have you built leadership capacity within your school through middle leaders etc?

    Thanks for your help! What areas does your DHT lead on and then your AHT?

    It depends how many students you have on roll.

    Some schools have a HT, DHT and then Head of KS1 and Head of KS2. That would work better for a school on a smaller scale.

    My ideal SLT would be:
    1 X HT
    1 X DHT
    1 X AHT

    As part of the extended leadership team, I would also have Head of Key Stages, SEN Manager and Network Manager. The AHT roleholder would be responsible for data and attendance etc.

    I have UPR teachers
    A deputy on maternity leave ...
    but despite three rounds of recruitment, we couldn't cover it
    And a TLR post remains vacant

    All staff - whatever level - chip in and do their bit. Its a team approach.
    everyone does more than they should
