    Hi; I’m a recently ex primary HT now working for an LA. I want to focus leadership teams in te LA not just on “what makes great teaching?” but also “how to make teaching better in your school” (hint – sending teachers on a course isn’t the answer.) It’s that second question that I’m working on at the moment. I read your Checklist blog – HT often talk about agreeing / imposing “non-negotiables” as a kind of answer. As a HT I don’t think I ever articulated a full list of possible strategies so I could then pick the best for the context. Any thoughts?
