THIS SUNDAY... SEND FLOWERS TO THOSE YOU LOVE AND CARE ABOUT!

To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower.
Hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour.

SOMEONE ELSE'S PROBLEM!

“The Somebody Else's Problem field is much simpler and more effective, and what's more can be run for over a hundred years on a single torch battery. This is because it relies on people's natural disposition not to see anything they don't want to, weren't expecting, or can't explain.”

BE YOUR BRILLIANT BEST!

I have been to some incredible learning places recently. Across the country, brilliant colleagues working in schools and classrooms are releasing the magic and delivering world class outcomes, often against the odds. We know what it takes to build brilliant... it's alive and well in so many places.

REFLECT AND LEARN!

I suppose I have been a critical, reflective learner all my life. All the best colleagues I know, reflect on the quality of their work. They do this as professionals who are responsible for the quality of their work and for the achievements and the personal and social development of the young people they teach, and as members of a team, which is responsible for the overall quality of educational provision.

COMMAND AND CONTROL!

We all know that command and control doesn't work and we all need to wake up to the fact that what really, really matters is how we engage and enthuse children and young people as powerful learners with enormous potential...

THINK TEAM!

What makes a good school? what makes a really successful school? Research clearly shows that the leadership of schools can have a hugely positive impact on the educational outcomes of young people... but success is all about TEAM!

THE SIGN ON THE DOOR!

Throughout my working life things I have lived with constant and relentless change. Things have never stayed the same and I have been blessed to be living in a world where creativity, innovation and change have been constant factors.
