What is a Senior leadership team?

The SLT is a team of school leaders at different levels that involve themselves in the daily management and running of the school to help it reach its business objectives.

The SLT focus on leading, school improvement priorities, monitoring teaching and learning, staff development and can include wider areas, such as safeguarding or Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND).

It is the role of the SLT to set the school's direction. They implement strategies to support school improvement and make sure the day-to-day running of the school is underpinned by its values and ethos. Being part of the SLT comes with a high level of responsibility with various demands and challenges.
