The Aims of the Association are summarised by the following statement and are followed by all members when representing Devon primary schools:
“DAPH represents and supports school leadership and leadership development across all schools in Devon. As an association we seek to represent views which enable strategic decisions to be taken in the best interests of all children.
Equity of opportunity, which could mean an inequitable distribution of resources, is the driving principle that allows decisions for children’s specific needs to be met. Not all children have the same needs, so good decision making is often about creating the appropriate diversity to meet their needs.
Our organisation is committed to partnership working, to which end, good communication is key.”
