Our Team

Base-Leaders

Having an Executive Headteacher working across three sites means that she is often off-site at one of our partner schools. We have therefore established the role of ‘base-leader’: an experienced member of staff who has a broad and thorough oversight of the workings of the individual school and its pupils and can therefore make decisions about how to deal with issues, queries, or concerns.

The base-leader also has a few other key duties:

  • To de-brief the headteacher on a daily basis at the end of the day
  • To lead Monday morning briefing when the headteacher is off-site
  • To lead Collective Worship on Mondays
  • To lead celebration assembly on Friday afternoons
  • To oversee safeguarding issues, including health and safety
  • To oversee educational visits

The base-leaders have the opportunity to get together on a regular basis to evaluate their role and share experiences.
