Great podcast

Real inspiring stories

Common outlook

I agree with the common vocabulary and vision across the school (amongst staff and pupils). Having both staff and pupils take part in decide the school mission gives a sense of ownership and purpose - I think schools need that rather than it be dictated to them - especially for staff moral.
