Description National Conference for Primary Deputy and Assistant Headteachers - Creative, Curious and Courageous: Embracing the Leadership Challenge! Strong leadership in schools is key to driving up standards and ensuring all young people get the good education they deserve. The recent Ofsted East of England Regional Report highlights "the importance of ensuing higher quality teaching, driven by confident, competent leaders at all levels". The report also goes on to say that schools need to "embed a culture of high expectations and ambition driven by system leaders and governors." This one day national conference will explore the leadership role of deputy and assistant headteachers in the context of current educational change and challenge. This annual event is extremely popular with both new and experienced deputy and assistant headteachers and, as well as providing the opportunity to learn from the keynote speakers, it offers delegates a forum for developing additional support and liaison networks with colleagues in similar leadership roles.
