Senior Leadership Team

A Senior Leadership Team (SLT) will vary in number and structure dependent on the size and nature of the school in question – but primarily will comprise.

  • Headteacher
  • Deputy Headteacher
  • Key Stage Leaders
  • Core Subject Coordinators (inc Planning and Assessment)
  • SENDCo
  • Year group Leaders – very large schools only
  • School Business Manager

So lets try and get an overarching statement that sums up what the responsibilities of this group should be. Firstly lets have a look at what they have to consider

  • The school and grounds as a building and safe working environment for staff and pupils
  • The school and grounds maintenance and possibly future development
  • The interior fitments and equipment maintenance and replacement
  • All educational equipment maintenance and equipment

SLT undertake a variety of tasks to keep the school operating effieciently

  • The organisation of staffing within the school
  • Classroom and class organisation
  • To ensure  teaching and learning provision and standards in line with the current educational curriculum and national levels of expectation. (now that’s a broad statement that encompasses SO MUCH!)
  • To provide up to date staff professional development which enables staff to carry out their roles and responsibilities within the school whilst at the same time providing career development and opportunity.
  • The SLT will organise the schools preparation and response to inspections, assessments and other external requests and requirements made of the school.
