Time for reflection

29th November 2021

As the speed of each week seems to increase, time to stop and reflect is even more precious. I was fortunate enough to have several valuable opportunities for professional reflection last week which I thought I would share.

I attended a conference and enjoyed a presentation from Olivier Mythodrama. The session explored leadership and the components of effective leadership through an analysis of Shakespeare’s Henry V.

The session was expertly brought alive by the facilitator who, as an actor was skilfully able to utilise theatre skills to engage the audience as they considered their own sense of purpose and indeed managed their own Dark Night(s). The core message was that authentic leaders are ordinary people able to draw on extraordinary talents, and that they are prepared to bring all of themselves to work, to stand up for what is important, and to adapt appropriately to meet new situations.

How fortunate we are as an organisation, to have such extraordinary talents in our teachers and leaders.

My second high point, initially was going to be sharing my reflections following a presentation from Daisy Christodoulou where she talked about the importance of memory in the midst of current challenges and disruption. However, her talk was trumped on Friday when I had the opportunity of hearing a group of KS3 pupils in one of our schools talking about the importance of memory in their own learning. During an internal curriculum review, these pupils were able to clearly articulate the benefit of retrieval practice as an opportunity to refresh your brain. Music to any teacher’s ears and a motivating end to a busy week.
