To what extent is it understood by every student in the school?
Do the people who read it feel and believe that its message represents them as well, that it’s about them?
How many members of the community have contributed to generating this statement?
Do the development and management plans support the school’s evolution process, which leads to fulfilling the message of the statement?
Is the school I am leading as a principal a community? Does it work like a community?

We offer consultancy services on a longer term, in order to align the development,
the management, and activities plans at the level of each department, with the vision and the mission of the school, with the need to ensure a memorable learning experience for the students, with the purpose of ensuring the wellbeing of all members of the community.
Having a 2-3 day visit (depending on the size of the school) with a team which includes a psychologist. The focus of our presence in school is to observe the dynamics of the relationships between the members of the community, the quality of the students’ and teachers’ learning experience during lessons, and the extent to which the school’s system are aligned with the vision and the mission of the school.
At the end of the visit, we generate a report which includes an analysis of the strengths of the school, which must and will be developed further, and which identifies the areas where interventions are possible, with the purpose of reaching the transformational objectives sought for.
Together with the team of leaders in the school, the actions and the practical steps connected are identified.
