'Too often, headteachers don't practice what they preach'



How often do we meet school leaders who fail to practice what they preach? Who talk about the value of lifelong learning yet demonstrate a fixed mindset; who talk about outstanding teaching yet rarely teach themselves?
I believe strongly that it is up to the headteacher to promote and model the core values and beliefs of a school. It is my assertion that the headteacher of a school should in fact be seen as the lead learner, responsible for establishing the conditions in a school that enable the continuous learning of all pupils and all staff.
