How to use this resource:
• Review the list of questions with your senior team in your SLT or SMLT meetings. Choose five to ten questions at a time so this is not overwhelming. Or you could share these questions with members of your senior team and use this as a framework to structure your line management meetings.
• List the type of evidence you have in place.
• Use this as a go-to document for checking what you have and what you need to work on further.
