I started the day with the Education Leeds Board...

The Board, while recognising the real progress we are making, challenged us to do better and to continue to tackle the ongoing issues around school improvement, coasting schools, contextual value-added, post-16 provision, progress in English and mathematics, underachieving groups, gifted and talented provision and leadership development.

We must work hard to research and understand the challenges we face; finding out what works and what doesn't work and building consistently brilliant provision in every classroom and every school... whatever it takes! Importantly, we must continue to learn from best practice both here in Leeds, regionally, nationally and internationally... developing learning leadership which trusts, empowers, engages and drives brilliant outcomes.
