Already done the usual data gathering = STEEP, SWOT and filling the team in on stuff they were not up-to-date on.
Thinking about how our strategy will be driven by Vision/Ethos, Short and Medium term goals, etc. Looks like we will have to do some work on the overall components as well - tentative list:
- Change capability
- Recruitment and retention
- Team working - across sites as well as within sites
- Training and development/CPD
- Flexibility to meet pupil needs
- Life balance (NB NOT Work/Life balance - work is part of life!)
- Performance management
- Diversity/Equal Opps
- Leadership, management and delivery
What's good is that we have a multi-discipline team from across our several sites doing the work for SMT to consider - a real move forward and one that seems to be paying off in terms of broadening and deepening staff understanding of some of the issues involved in running the school.
