People and Resources

Teachers are by far the most important resource for student learning in the school, and attention must be paid to their learning and other needs.


Major features of a strong performance and development culture in a school are encouragement of professional growth and the provision of opportunities for teachers to contribute their own special talents to the general good. This entails that physical resources are available and deployed in ways that allow teachers and students to work in comfortable spaces where the materials that support learning are at hand.

It also means the intelligent placement of support staff such as teacher-aides, and managing blocks of time in ways that allow sufficient time for teachers to plan, and students to engage in learning. The challenge for school leaders is to ensure that the school's arrangements for managing staff and resources are oriented towards enhanced teacher and student performance.
