Key Voices #63 – Putting staff first with John Tomsett and Jonny Uttley

Sorry, interference has slightly impaired the sound in some parts of this podcast.

This week we talk to John Tomsett, Headeacher at Huntington School and Jonny Uttley, CEO, The Education Alliance about the book they co-authored ‘Putting staff first’. We discuss some practical ways that leaders can create a school culture that nurtures staff so they can better support their pupils. We also talk about the role high quality staff development, research-informed practice, meaningful performance management and reduced workload can all play in establishing such a culture. 

Finally, we consider the qualities required to lead teaching and learning as a Headteacher or CEO, and the system changes John and Jonny would like to see in the next 10 years.
