I’m in SLT, I’m not a monster. Some of us are realistic, hard working, supportive leaders. I’m the first one in and the last one out nearly every day. I don’t strut, i have been known to skip. I do often have a clipboard, but it’s full of children’s observations. And if I didn’t have the staff team I lead I would be drowning. Far cry from my last school, which had a culture of fear, and my days were spent protecting the team from the pressures above. Sweeping statements denouncing every SLT member ever to exist are not necessarily true, there are still some of us good guys out there. I greet everyone from executive head, children and cleaners the same way, not doing so is plain rude!
