  • Deputy Head Teacher
  • Company: The Clere School

Paul is a Deputy Headteacher in Hampshire with 20+ years of teaching experience. He is a student of educational leadership and is particularly interested in the ‘servant’ and ‘authentic’ leadership models. Paul believes that school leaders have a responsibility to support their colleagues’ growth through meeting their psychological needs for autonomy, competence and relatedness. Academically, Paul writes mostly about social mobility in the British state education system, particularly the motivational challenges facing children from low-income families. He is a huge fan of Martin Robinson’s ‘Trivium21C’ curriculum design concept and loves few things more than a day or two away at an education conference.
