Celebrating the Good

I've been incredibly privileged to spend time this week with some extraordinary school leaders. Their determination to provide the very best education for their children has been inspiring. The resilience and determination they show in an ever changing landscape shows hope for the future of UK education.


However, it is crucial that they maintain their own mental health and well-being. Whether this be though coaching, action learning, leadership networks or social media. 


What has really resonated with me is their common desire to enhance, develop and reflect on their own practice but with positivity. As trainee teachers we are taught from day 1 to continually reflect and think about what we could have done differently or better. This is of course important however in doing so we often lose sight of what we do well. 


As educators, we encourage our children to celebrate and share their successes and this should also be true of ourselves. 


There is so much good going on.
