In an ever demanding world the need to balance school and home life has never been greater. Recently I explored and shared with staff the 80/20 principle.
Pareto’s rule of measuring effective output. It hit home to all staff when we data analysed where 80% of our grade A’s were coming from to discover actually stemmed from 20% of the subjects on offer! So we delved into how we allocate our energy and discussed shared planning and directing energy towards the critical 20% of activities that will yield 80% of our most useful outcomes.
Well worth a further read and during half term or summer just order that to do list and make your life that bit easier.
