Putting Staff First – A #TrustLeaders Review

Helen Rowland

This Summer we’re asking our #TrustLeaders members to review some key publications from within and beyond the education system. Here, Helen Rowland, CEO of Focus-Trust, reviews ‘Putting Staff First’ by John Tomsett and Jonny Uttley

At first glance, I was slightly concerned by the title ‘Putting Staff First,’ as throughout my twelve years as headteacher and now seven as a Trust Leader, I’ve always endeavoured to make decisions based on putting the children first. However, having loved John Tomsett’s first book in 2014, ‘Love over Fear  – developing a culture for truly great teaching’, and used it to develop our own Trust culture, I was tempted to take a second look and order my own copy. I am delighted I did!
