1 Succession Planning: a strategy for schools with a religious character London Dioceses – 23 June 2010

2 2 Key areas to cover Why a strategy is needed How it has been developed What we are aiming to achieve How we will know we have been successful What happens next?

3 3 Why a succession planning strategy for faith schools -Demographics -Perception of headship -A long apprenticeship -Changes in pupil numbers -Diversity -High level of headteacher readvertisements -Having sufficient numbers of aspiring leaders able to articulate and lead the distinctiveness of a school with a religious character These are issues for all schools More intense in your sector One of the key challenges for you and your governors

4 4 Just a reminder of the demographic challenge which we face 33% are 55+ Head Teachers 64% are 50+ Sourced from the latest DCSF Pensions Database of Teacher Records (as at 31/03/2007)

5 5 Heads have always been older but never in these unique numbers… In 1997 only 40% of heads were 50 years or older and only 13% were 55 or over 1977198719972007 50+43.242.140.364 55+19.421.212.833 DCSF sourced data

6 6 The replacement supply of HT will come from the Senior Leader population 45% are 50+ Age Profile of non-HT Senior Leaders Sourced from the latest DCSF Pensions Database of Teacher Records (as at 31/03/2007) 23% are 55+

7 7 National College work with CESEW and NS up to 2009 Grants provided to CESEW and NS, £100k each in 2007-08 CESEW: to develop DVD and publication and associated support materials, support a national conference for governors and a series of regional projects NS: to support regional conferences, develop case studies and DvD, and develop a strategy Diocesan engagement with local solutions

8 8 The development of the 2010 /11 strategy – key partnership between the CESEW and NS Initial approach by National College Residential conference in December 09 with diocesan colleagues Working group established with diocesan and LA representatives 3 meetings held Strategy completed in April 10 The CESEW and NS are intending to complement our strategy with their own associated strategies and materials

9 9 What the strategy aims to achieve To secure a sufficient supply of high quality leaders at all levels in schools with a religious character which results in: An increase in the number, quality and diversity of aspiring leaders in the sector An increase in the retention and reinvigoration of current leaders An overall improvement in the quality of school leadership and therefore outcomes for children An increased strategic involvement of governors in succession planning and leadership development A sustainable approach

10 10 The essence of the strategy is a deal The deal is between the College and dioceses and, us together, with aspiring leaders, existing leaders and governors The deal provides details of what: -We will provide to you -You will provide to us -Working together, what we will provide for: -aspiring leaders -governors -experienced heads
