IPPN logoThis report is the culmination of over two years of research and consultation exploring the current reality and sustainability of primary leadership and six related themes: 

  1. Effective School Leadership & Core Purpose
  2. Preparation for Leadership
  3. Recruitment of School Leaders
  4. Time and Space to Lead
  5. Sharing and Supporting Leadership
  6. Governance

Each of these chapters sets out recommendations - or a roadmap to sustainability - for that aspect of school leadership.  Click here to access the report.

In formulating this report, IPPN has consulted with thousands of members, with the IPPN Board of Directors and with ‘critical friends’ of IPPN. Dr Gavin Murphy is one of the 'critical friends'. Gavin is coordinator of the M.Ed. Leadership and Policy programme in School of Education.
