Middle and senior leaders are a large and diverse group. Their needs differ for strategic, pedagogical, and administrative leadership across kura and schools.

Middle and senior leadership roles are defined in response to each school’s unique context and needs. Your middle and senior leaders play a vital role in achieving school or kura objectives. They are fundamental to improving ākonga outcomes.
