New Headteacher Standards

The new Professional Standards for headteachers were published yesterday (19th January 2015) These standards are to help improve the practice and development of:

  • headteachers
  • governing boards
  • aspiring headteachers

They replace the the old standards which were last updated in 2004. The new standards have been well-received. The review body have also recommended that a full review of the standards be carried out at five-yearly intervals to ensure they remain up to date.
The standards can be accessed on the gov.uk website.
