Progress reported at CRHS

Positive steps are being taken at Castle Rushen High School to improve relations between senior leaders and staff.

That's one of the conclusions in an interim report on the progress of an Action Plan, put in place at the school earlier this year.

In Tynwald this week, Rushen MHK Juan Watterson asked for an update on action to resolve problems at the school, and received a detailed reply.

Marian Kenny reports (text, below, from attached audio file):

Poor communication and a lack of consultation between senior leaders and staff were key findings of a special inspection of Castle Rushen.

The action plan to address those problems is making progress, according to independent consultants who are monitoring it.

Mr Watterson has been told the views of staff, pupils and governors have been sought at each stage in the plan's development, and systems for effective team working are emerging.

A national programme to spread leadership more widely is being put in place.

It's called Leading from the Middle and will be tested as an alternative to replacing the assistant headteacher when the post becomes vacant at the end of term.
