Buxton Community School

Senior Leadership Team

The Senior Leadership Team is a key leadership group within the school, as well as having a major role to play in the day-to-day running of the school. All members of the SLT have particular responsibility for the development, delivery and monitoring of whole school systems and practices, the support and supervision of middle leaders, and ensuring good discipline around the school. They play a crucial role, through systems of line management, in ensuring that the School Improvement Plan is a working tool, which moves the school forward. It is the responsibility of the Senior Leadership Team to ensure that the vision for the school is delivered by working effectively with all staff in the school.
