SLE Specialism: Leadership of Curriculum

Fiona Aris is an experienced Senior Leader. She has successfully led rapid school improvement in Behaviour and Safety, Leadership and Teaching and Learning. Fiona has secured rapid and deep improvement in Teaching and Learning at her current Academy, raising good or better Teaching and Learning from a very low starting point to ‘Outstanding’ in one term. She uses a blend of “fresh” and creative strategies to increase staff motivation, generate hope and belief.

Fiona has successfully led her Academy through the strategic development and implementation of a very successful House System. This included the development of new Behaviour and Attendance Policy and protocols, the development of a robust Pastoral Curriculum, outstanding Safeguarding Policy and procedures and during this time secured a good grade for the school from a very low starting point. Fiona is currently advising on all aspects of Safeguarding at her Academy.

Fiona is particularly interested in supporting other school leaders on their journey to outstanding. She is seeking opportunities to work in collaboration with other leaders to rapidly, deeply embed outstanding practice and to grow capacity within schools to lead on all strategic aspects of school improvement. Fiona`s methods will generate new thinking, deeply challenge and nurture staff within a highly supportive ethos.
