Overview

The aim of this paper is to examine the varied leadership style that have been adopted in the school environment and, from this analysis to assess which are most likely to have a positive impact on the issues that have been identified.

In the mid-2000s, in an effort to address increasing concerns about school student behaviour, exclusion and truancy, the UK labour government introduced a new educational strategy, the primary aim of which was aimed at resolving these concerns by identifying and seeking to resolve the motivational factors driving these problems (Dfes 2006). The review did not, however, solely focus on encouraging a change in the behaviour of the student, but also considered strategies that teachers and other stakeholders might adopted to assist in bringing about this change. One area that was particularly highlighted in the review was the need for a change in school and educational leadership (Dfes 2006).
