The Secondary English Leadership File resource intends to set out what constitutes good practice and provide tools to support leaders to help measure the quality of education within the English department. This is so that pupils know and remember more over time as they progress through the English curriculum.
The Secondary English Leadership File resource has multiple purposes:
- to provide prompts and templates to consider aligning department practice in line with research informed best practice
- once compiled, this resource will give you confidence that you have the evidence of your impact as English subject leader and this can be grabbed for meetings with your senior leaders, headteacher, governors or external visitors including Ofsted
- compiling this folder will involve professional dialogue between yourself and your senior leadership team
- this resource also includes everything a member of staff needs to know to deliver English lessons in your school. Some of these sections could be used as an induction booklet for new staff.
This File provides a comprehensive guide for English Middle Leaders, supporting them all with all aspects of their work and developing their understanding of how to review and develop their curriculum, explore data, enhance teaching and learning practices and grow their team. The file provides both practical resources to audit existing practices, exemplar documents and information around the theory which underpins the work of a middle leader.
The Secondary English Leadership File is perfect for both new middle leaders and those wishing to explore how to develop their practice further.
