All Headteachers that are new to our diocese are invited to take part in the DBE Induction Programme.
For Headteachers new to leadership of a Church school are supported in areas that LA / LPH induction does not cover.
For Headteachers to build relationships with partners within the diocesan structures e.g., other Church school heads, DBE team members, legal advisors, building advisors
For Headteachers to be supported in their leadership in line with the DBE’s vision for all Church schools across the diocese
The Induction Programme will run annually from September, heads joining at other times of the year will visited by DDE / ADDE and supported by them and the standard CPD programme until the following autumn when this programme will operate again.
A named DBE Associate (an experienced Headteacher of a CofE school) will contact the new headteachers and offer support via telephone / a visit where appropriate. This is not intended to replace any mentoring provided by a MAT or LPH, but to support new heads / interim heads in church schools.
