Curriculum for Wales: Nursery leadership in Wales

The importance of effective leadership should not be underestimated.

Effective leaders bring people together and influence the ethos, values, innovation and growth of the people and organisations they lead. Leaders can influence patterns of behaviour, beliefs and motivation.

When implementing a significant change to practice, such as the introduction of a new curriculum, effective leadership is required.

Effective leadership is enhanced by:

  • High standards of practice, knowledge and care
  • Creating a shared vision
  • Supporting your team through change
  • Enabling professional learning
  • Working together
  • Encouraging reflection.
