Making the conscious choice to work with school leaders, aware of the impact on communities from modelling positive relationships with self and others, New Routes Ltd is an established provider of supervision working with Head Teachers, senior leadership teams and wider teaching and non-teaching staff with supervision on both a 1-1 and group basis.

Our supervision and mental wellbeing offer is for school leaders who need a confidential space to focus and explore issues. Tailored to individual needs it can allow for increased head space, time for clear thinking to support better decision making and address decision fatigue and further healthy boundaries for a work life balance.  

Understanding that the weight of the role can result in limited head space with supervision enabling time and space for leaders to reflect and off-load, as a preventative approach to burnout.  Differing in its approach to managerial supervision which can have its focus on the task, as opposed to person-centred.

Supervisees experience curiosity, support, validation, and challenge about their work, with concerns or issues being challenged sensitively and honestly and successes acknowledged.  The learning from which can support further an understanding of behaviours of staff, themselves and of children and pupils.

The outcome often an increase in personal and job satisfaction and improved mental wellbeing from having the space to off load and not carry the weight of such roles.

 

Group supervision for Head Teachers allows for facilitated peer -to-peer discussion and supervisor guided reflection.
