Where School Leadership Meets Developmental Psychology-
My current research project, in a nut-shell, is about the influence of whole-school-ethos upon the mental health of children.
In academic terms: An exploration of the influence of school-ethos and ethos-focused-leadership upon the development of psychological resilience in primary aged children in England. It will be conducted with a supervisory team from The Institute of Education, Nottingham Trent University. It will explore the development of resilience in children through:
shared vision and values
ethos focused governance
innovative curriculum and teaching
valuing children’s voice
So, do you know a school with a commitment to continuous school improvement in this area that would like to take part? Are you a governor, Headteacher or teacher who is committed to a whole school approach that prioritises children’s mental health and wellbeing?
If so, please do get in touch to find out more! We would love to hear from you.
