In this episode of the We Are In Beta Podcast, Evelyn Forde, Headteacher at Copthall School, shares her thoughts on:

how her daughters inspired her to make a change, how she overcame the odds to secure her dream role at Copthall, how she led the school to achieve exceptional results, how she improved teaching and learning through incremental coaching, what she is doing to improve staff wellbeing, which stakeholders she included in developing the school’s culture, which headlines do headteachers a disservice and why, how performance tables can actually deter schools from off-rolling rather than incentivise them, the one question she would like to ask every headteacher if she could, what excites her about the future of education and why, how running for presidency always make her smile, even when she’s feeling a bit down.
