As a part of her induction to Education Leeds, my new colleague Louise Vardey, Head of Personnel, went to Ingram Road Primary last week. Louise was clearly bowled over by her visit to this wonderful little school. She told me that she thought Sara Millard is a great headteacher who was justifiably very proud of everything that the school is achieving. For instance:
  • Hilary Benn MP visited as a part of the Red Nose Day events;
  • photos of Sara's school children appeared on the Leeds School Meals Strategy newsletter;
  • the school is a fantastic example of a healthy school;
  • the school is a Beacon for English as a second language;
  • their Contextual Value Added is 103!
  • it is one of the best, if not the best, schools for the take up of free schools meals in Leeds.

We are so lucky to have brilliant leaders, like Sara, leading great schools here in Leeds.
