I started the day early with the Meanwood and Moortown Family of Schools headteachers for a breakfast meeting at the David Lloyd Centre...

They are an inspiring bunch of incredibly talented colleagues who are releasing a very special kind of magic in their schools. We talked about the successes we have had with Bluewave SWIFT winning the BETT Award for Leadership and Management Innovation and Carr Manor High School as the first PfI school to win a Leeds Architecture Award. We also discussed the DCSF's new Children's Plan, the outcome of the Joint Area Review, the work we are doing on the Leeds Inclusive Learning Strategy, the developing 14 - 19 Strategy, the Building Schools for the Future and the Primary Capital Programmes and the opportunities within the new world of Trusts, Federations and Academies.

I am always engaged, stimulated and inspired by these meetings with headteacher colleagues and this morning was an example of this at its best!
