Title: The Significant Other

The Significant OtherA leadership perspective
Kathleen Gormley St. Cecilias
Happy for Who?
  • Tension in schools about who they are for
  • Need to remind all stakeholders of focus
  • The recipe for happiness changes
  • Happiness is a culture clearly stated and easily
  • When we feel love and kindness towards others,
    it not only makes others feel loved and cared
    for, but it helps us also to develop inner
    happiness and peace.
  • The Dalai Lama

'Believers are happier than atheists'
Jonathan Petre, Religion
Correspondent, The Telegraph
  • When pupils believe
  • that their school is a good school
  • It is a place that they can achieve a place
    for their success
  • they can question/influence decisions
  • It is secure, safe and belonging community

Keeping them happy!
  • Curriculum review every year in each Key Stage
  • Time given to Option Choices of each child
  • Celebrate success often and in different ways
  • Pastoral policies/procedures reviewed
  • Positive behaviour strategies/clear discipline
  • Student leadership/voice
  • Environment is one that cares
  • Clear, well voiced culture

Never take happiness for granted
  • Ownership of the school they should be able to
    ask. Ask them!
  • Teach them to say in a way you and other people
    will listen and understand
  • Remind them why you are there
  • Emotionally intelligent leaders
  • Do what it says on the tin!

  • It is a happy talent to know how to play. You
    can discover more about a person in an hour of
    play than in a year of conversation.
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson

Costs of A Happy School
  • Time
  • Effort
  • Risk
  • Creativity
  • LOreal Girls
  • They know it! They believe it!

If youre happy, then Im happy too!
