Attention to the topic of school leadership has grown in recent years as research has shown the key role played by school leaders and their influence on learner outcomes. In the context of increasing school autonomy in many countries, this role’s profile and complexity have increased, as has recognition of the need for support.
This document summarises recent international and European-level policy documents that are relevant to school leadership. This work has, along with the literature review, informed the development of a conceptual framework for the Supporting Inclusive School Leadership (SISL) project. Importantly, it supported the design of a survey to collect relevant information from Agency member countries to examine policies that impact on school leaders.
