Abstract

This chapter offers a much-needed exploration of the challenge of moving beyond narrow conceptions of leadership for learning in the context of school leadership. The authors locate leadership for learning within a broader place-based and multi-agency approach to tackling inequalities and improving outcomes for young people living in low socio-economic settings. Drawing the principles of collective impact and the evidence from place-based approaches, the authors chart some of the early experiences of developing Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland in the East End of Glasgow and reflect on developments, opportunities, and challenges as a practical example of leadership for learning in a broader setting.
