Coming together to Lead Like A Star in 2018/19

Senior Leaders from across our schools and academies came together at the weekend for Star’s annual conference, an inspirational kick-start to the 2018/19 academic year.

Tauheedul Islam Girls’ High School hosted the Lead Like A Star conference for around 200 delegates who made the journey to Blackburn from our five Star Partnerships in Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire, West Midlands, London and Lancashire.

Through our annual conference, we aimed to bring senior staff together to review our academic performance during 2017/18, and to set key priorities and targets for the new academic year. As well as receiving updates on curriculum and assessment, our senior leaders shared best practice in a number of areas, including behaviour & attendance, tracking, analysis & intervention, and embedding our pupil leadership specialism.

Our senior leaders were also inspired by our two keynote speakers whom we were delighted to welcome to this year’s conference: Sir Michael Wilshaw and Major General Duncan Capps CBE.

Sir Michael Wilshaw, the former Head of Ofsted and Chief Inspector of Schools, addressed our conference delegates, sharing his insight on ‘The Importance of Moral and Performance Leadership’.

Major General Duncan Capps CPE of the British Army gave a lively presentation on ‘Leading a Values Driven Organisation’ with many anecdotes from this time leading operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mufti Hamid Patel, Star Academies’ Chief Executive, commented:

“After a busy first week back in school, we’re grateful to our senior leaders for giving up their Saturday to attend our Lead Like A Star conference. It was wonderful to see everyone gathered together, engaging in meaningful discussions and sharing their wealth of experience with one another.

“Since our 2017 conference, Star has grown with the addition of six schools. The conference set everyone on the same path for 2018/19: that of the pursuit of excellence for the benefit of all our pupils.”
