A school’s strategic education plan brings together its vision and values, achieving buy-in from the staff and community. In this seven-page Best Practice Focus, headteacher Ben Solly sets out his approach, with plenty of ideas and advice.

The in-depth, six-page article considers vision, values and priorities, how to create highly effective teams, and how this all links to impact and outcomes.

Ben Solly's advice covers the strategic, operational and interpersonal domains (Pendleton & Furnham, 2012) and looks at vision, values and creating alignment around strategic priorities.

He considers building social capital in your school, developing leaders, and building discretionary effort. And he looks at how this allows us to deliver results with intelligent accountability and trust.
