Home / Our School / Distributed Leadership Model
At Bicton we have a distributed leadership model that was designed to support the collaboration and learning of our students. “There is no substitute for a well-designed school leadership model – one that distributes end-to end responsibility for improving teaching and learning” (Brain, 2018).
Our model incorporates Team Leaders (who are supported to lead their teams in collaborative planning, reflection, assessment, monitoring, differentiation and best practice in teaching), Curriculum Leaders (who are supported lead the operational planning of our curriculum areas, oversee and monitor whole school programs and strategies and strategically resource) and Specialist Project or Initiative Leaders (who focus on specialist areas requiring leadership and innovation).
The focus of distributing leadership at Bicton is to develop our vibrant learning community where our collaboration and combined skills help students fulfil their potential. Great leadership is an essential ingredient in making a school successful therefore our school looks at a multifaceted approach to this and we build leaders at many levels.
