Absent head teachers

Occasionally, one of our members will contact us about a piece of work and invite us to share it with our wider membership. This is one of those occasions, and it relates to a piece of work that NAHT is delighted to endorse. 

Head teacher Lou Harrison and the Leicestershire Traded Services' HR team have been kind enough to share their guidance around good practice in supporting absent school leaders.
