The Principal Standard was developed to provide guidance on what you should know, understand and do to succeed as a school leader. It's designed for both current and aspiring school leaders.
Principals are leading educational professionals. They inspire students, staff and community members to continuously enhance learning. The Principal Standard promotes a shared vision for effective and impactful school leadership, so principals and school leaders can continually strive to understand and improve their impact.
The Principal Standard emerged from an intensive and collaborative process involving national and international research, critical review and feedback from over 550 stakeholders. The Principal Standard was developed in collaboration with UK expert, Dame Patricia ‘Pat’ Collarbone.
