Background: Gateways & Deeps

Professor David Hargreaves devised four ‘deeps’ as part of a route and branch look into the need for deep change across all education sectors. They provide School Leadership teams with a framework of principles and gateways into improvement work and key improvement agenda.

The four deeps are:

  • Deep Leadership
  • Deep Experience
  • Deep Support
  • Deep Learning

At Ysgol Rhydygors, we will be using Hargreaves’ four deeps as a tool for framing our school improvement work. The deeps are the four hooks upon which our whole improvement planning agenda hang.
