011 Clayton Reedie: Empowering teachers for impact

Better Leaders Better Schools guest Clayton Reedie, the Principal of Dalmeny Public School located in the South-Western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. Dalmeny, a K-6 school with over 1,000 students and 80 staff, is Clayton’s fourth Principalship. The first being Mount Hunter Public School, a small country school of 56 students near Camden outside of Sydney.


Clayton began teaching in 1991 and has built his leadership experience across a range of settings and executive positions. In addition to these school-based roles, Clayton has been the President of the Liverpool Primary Principals’ Council for three years and has spent time on secondment with the New South Wales Department of Education in a number of Principal support roles. The most recent being with the High Performance Directorate assisting principals to implement a range of reforms around budgeting, localised decision-making processes and school planning.


Clayton believes in focused, differentiated professional learning for his staff to improve lesson delivery and maximise success for students. Dalmeny’s professional development structures are a model for many colleagues.


When not at work, Clayton enjoys traveling, Rugby League Football (go the Tigers!), V8 Supercars (go Ford!) and watching cricket. He is married to Nikki (also a school Principal) and has five children (all boys!) who keep him very grounded – and very busy!
