Strand 03: Leadership ROOM 229 | 10:45 to 11:30

Ruth Ryan, Deputy Principal, Castle Academy, Northampton


The session will include an outline of our journey out of Special Measures by creating a culture which focuses on stakeholders’ responsibility for self- improvement. Through our work focused on creating outstanding teaching and learning opportunities, delegated leadership and coaching, we have been able to significantly improve outcomes for all pupils, staff retention and our capacity to sustain improvement. We are now in a position to support other schools through our accreditation as a Teaching and Learning Hub. Our model of school improvement is not a quick fix but builds a culture of collaboration, self reflection and positive challenge.
