In this programme Brian Bell, headteacher of Summerlea Community Primary School in Rustington, West Sussex, shares his thoughts on distributed leadership.
In theory, distributed leadership and delegating workload is said to reduce stress for headteachers. Brian, who has put it in practice, offers a first-hand account of whether in reality it does relieve, or in fact creates more work pressure.
Brian shares his knowledge on how distributed leadership works for him, as well as discussing how it can be put in place, with advice on how to look out for the potential pitfalls.
