The Principal's Role
The Principal's role is twofold
1. As an architect of culture, to engage and empower people in the quest for high efficacy and development, with a focus on learning and being a lead learner.
2. As a CEO, to meet the specified targets and expectations of the governing body of the school.
Effective Principal behaviours
Institutional excellence has five aspects.
Sound leadership and management
A focus on learning
A culture of high efficacy and development
A framework of programs
A quality assurance approach to continuous improvement
The following link leads to a grid of Principal behaviours that supports the five aspects.
Intervention & support
The principal is responsible for the quality assurance of all aspects of the school's operation. To ensure quality, systematic intervention and support is necessary when monitoring the progress of practices and initiatives. This is best achieved by actively & visibly leading and participating in the learning journeys of teachers and support staff.
