I started the day with a group of talented colleagues at the Chevin Lodge Country Park Hotel near Otley...

It was great to spend time having breakfast with a group of talented headteachers and to discuss how we develop local services for children and families building on some really brilliant local practice. The universal offer we make critically depends on colleagues like these... colleagues who acknowledge the real strengths in their schools, understand the weaknesses and the linitations and are prepared to work together to build even better provision... in the early years, in small primary schools and at post-14 and at post-16 in our secondary schools.

There are some inspiring people leading our schools.
