School effectiveness

Information for new headteachers

School leader induction provides the initial support and guidance necessary to enable new leaders to make an effective start in their new role.

The detail of the induction programme for a new headteacher will be determined by many factors, including the headteacher’s previous experience, whether already working within a Devon school or moving into the county and the particular circumstances of the school.

All new headteachers are invited to a briefing session that introduces them to key County Council staff and services and provides networking opportunities with other headteachers new to post.

New headteachers will also receive a visit from the nominated school adviser, which will take place as soon as possible after appointment.
