NAHT conference reflection

‘I have led a school since 2009 and I have always loved children and learning, but things have changed.  I feel under constant pressure to survive.  I fear the changing inspection process and struggle to remember why I am leading a school. The staff and children effectively rescue me daily and convert my glass from half empty to half full. I chose to lead but I don't want just to survive.  In the past three years there have been huge changes in education.  A culture of fear exists.  No matter how committed you are, a difficult school inspection can change everything.  You can feel that you are on your own - and, ultimately, you are.  Local authorities have all but gone and if you are failing you will be expected to move on and the school will be sponsored.’
