Executive Headteacher, New Wave Federation
"Leadership to Improve Learning": How do international school leaders ensure that improving learning remains at the forefront of their decision making in these challenging times? Michelle Thomas will outline how a learning-centred approach to leadership can drive school improvement and promote an innovative culture for all.
Michelle has been a Headteacher since 2004 and is currently the Executive Headteacher of The New Wave Federation which consists of 3 high performing and innovative primary schools in London. She is a recognised National Leader in Education (NLE) and Ofsted Inspector.
Her federation is proud to have IPC schools which have been accredited at Mastering level. Her passion and drive comes from her belief that all schools can be outstanding and that the rigour behind whatever you do, is vital in this transition.
She enjoys looking at new ways to approach learning so that all children achieve excellence. They were recently recognised by Apple as part of their school recognition program as Apple Distinguished Schools and thoroughly enjoy sharing their experiences on how to make learning fun, engaging and purposeful.
