I started the day early with a headteachers breakfast at the Manor Golf Club in Drighlington...

The meeting was with the Rothwell and Morley families of Schools and although breakfast was delayed because the chef was stuck on the motorway it was a great opportunity to share and talk about the challenges we face in Leeds and in these Families.

We talked about the wicked issues which challenge us all everyday:
  • developing leadership and governance;
  • building brilliant learning;
  • tackling underachieving groups;
  • supporting underachieving schools;
  • developing inclusive learning;
  • building better schools.

We alos briefly looked at succession planning, Trusts, federations and new models of governance. These are great headteachers doing a brilliant job driving up standards, developing extended services and working together to share their practice.
