"Closing the gap is a core task that all leaders need to address. It is vital that leaders develop systems and processes to ensure that all pupils achieve and that barriers can be removed for children in challenging circumstances. This module will highlight the need to place teaching and learning at the heart of all decision making and how setting high expectations is a fundamental right for all children. By the end of this, senior leaders should have the knowledge and expertise to prioritise their actions back in school to ensure that they are making the necessary choices to enable gaps between groups to be narrowed. It will also provide the analysis of reflections needed to identify the key under performing groups in school."
