When Wanda returns it is clear there is a lot of work to do. The Early Years teaching is entirely overhauled and teachers and teaching assistants are retrained to work with a more child-centred approach. Some staff find the challenges difficult and Wanda feels she still doesn’t have a team.
With the help of the Learning Trust Wanda reviews the school’s planning policies. The relentless pressures are taking their toll on everyone and predictably Wanda questions why she became a headteacher, but when she thinks of all the children she is helping, she remembers what attracted her to the top job.
