Who are we and what do we do?
Leicestershire Primary Heads (LPH) is an independent not for profit group which provides collegiality, information and support for Leicestershire Primary Headteachers.
We work to bring Leicestershire Primary Schools together for the benefit of our children by working collaboratively, promoting good practice and sharing expertise. Good communication is at the heart of our work and this website is a key part of this.
We wish to preserve the wider Leicestershire education community in the context of: a reducing LA, mulit academy trusts, Teaching Schools and other collaborative partnerships. LPH runs in addition to these groupings, providing a wider context by running termly headteacher briefings, regular mini conferences to provide training on highly topical issues and an annual residential conference.
LPH has a watching and listening brief on the Leicestershire Educational Excellence Partnership (LEEP) but we do not take part in any formal processes which would require us to sit in judgement on our colleagues. We are here to provide any headteacher in difficulties with confidential non-judgemental support. To this end we also coordinate new Headteacher induction with fully trained, experienced headteacher mentors available to support those new to headship or experienced heads new to Leicestershire. Please contact us if you fall into either of these categories and would like a mentor.
LPH also coordinates training for deputy and assistant heads as well as all other aspiring leaders. This training is also available to heads in their first year of headship. Please navigate to the Training and Development section of this website for more information.
The Executive that helps to run LPH is made up of representative Headteachers from many diferent types of Leicestershire schools. There are school leaders from infant, junior, all-through primary, small, special, academy and maintained schools.
If, as a Leicestershire head you are ever in any kind of difficulty or need some support or advice, please contact a member of the LPH Executive (see Member Directory - Contacts) who may be able to signpost you to the best source of support.
LPH is here for all Leicestershire Primary Heads, come and join us!
