About the day:
- Our leading with impact day focuses on our successful school improvement journey and how a shared culture of ‘leading with impact’ has had a huge part in the success of this school
- We will share our approach with you and then there will be an opportunity to see it in practice through our workshops
- You will visit children in classes and experience the whole school environment to see the school in action
- You will have the opportunity to hear from staff and speak with leaders from all levels across the school including teachers, teaching assistants and pupils and see first hand how their leadership directly impact our pupils
- You will get opportunities throughout the day to reflect and consider how our approach relates to your own context.
- If you joined the Headteacher, Samantha Saville in London for her presentation on Leading with Impact’, she will recap key messages but will extend the opportunity to see the presentation in practice and see first-hand how a culture of ‘leading with impact’ directly benefits both staff and pupils.
About Ashton Keynes CE Primary School:
We are a village primary school situated in the North of Wiltshire, in the Cotswolds. We have 221 pupils across our one form entry school. We are proudly a Church school and have a strong and positive connection with our local community and church. Our school has been on a very interesting and significant and successful school improvement journey and as a result we have so much to share. Our vision is ‘Shine Bright, Reach for the Stars’ and this runs through absolutely everything we do.
Leadership development has been a key factor in the school’s improvement journey,
ensuring a shared culture and an understanding of what impact is, why it is important and how ‘leading with impact’ can make a significant difference to pupil outcomes and to staff.
Leading with impact is about ‘reach’ and challenging leaders to be as efficient and impactful as they can so that everything they do matters and makes a difference to the pupils. That includes changing something swiftly if it is not having the desired impact.
The ‘shine’ is reflected through this impact as children flourish and reach their full potential and staff develop themselves professionally.
Staff articulate their impact and see the difference they make and this brings job satisfaction and enjoyment. Staff have a ‘finger on the pulse’, they see what is needed, use research purposefully and demonstrate how they make a difference.
‘Leading with Impact’ extends beyond the school. Staff work with other schools and establishments to provide support and engender impact both locally and nationally.
