Are you ready for the new school year? This podcast offers a practical checklist for senior leaders working in secondary schools to help you prepare for the autumn term and beyond.

Our experts discuss the common ‘new year’ tasks that school leaders need to consider as well as common problems at this time of year and how to respond.

We focus on the school improvement cycle and self-evaluation – what should be in place and what lies ahead in the autumn term for the School Improvement Plan?

We talk staffing: including INSET days and CPD, succession planning, supporting the induction of new staff, responding to staffing shortfalls, and communicating priorities to staff.

We ask how we can make parental engagement effective early in the school year.

We also consider curriculum-planning and assessment, governance and meeting cycles, school finances and budgeting.
