What we know about school leadership, NCSL, 2007
2
The Importance of School
Leadership
Student results will not improve without good school
leadership. In England, we know from our inspection data that for
every 100 schools that have good leadership and management, 93
will have good standards of achievement. For every 100 schools
that do not have good leadership and management, only 1 will
have good standards of achievement. There is not a single example
of a school turning around its performance in the absence of good
leadership. It is almost impossible, in England's system at least, to
have good results without good leadership and management.
(DCSF, 2008)

There is an emerging international
consensus on how to support school leadership
Finding
“One of the key revelations over the last ten years is that
school leadership is not just an HR issue – it is a strategic
issue.”
Singapore
Implication
Leadership focused on teaching, learning
and people is critical to the current and
future success of schools
“We are moving from pulling people out of schools to making
schools engines for building talent.”
New York
Spot talent early and move leadership
development into schools, but avoid
recycling low level practice
“Our whole purpose is delivering improvement – we’re not
interested in leadership development for its own sake.”
Victoria
Ensure leadership development is focussed
on school improvement
“Replacing an outstanding principal is the toughest and most
frightening experience of your life.”
Ontario
Support governing bodies to make the right
appointments and make the process fit for
purpose
