I had a great week last week with some amazing colleagues in some brilliant learning places…

I went to the White Rose Learning Centre to yet another STEPS programme. This one was for foster carers and was the first programme facilitated by parents… Brilliant!
I went to the University of Leeds to the diploma event for students who are starting the new diplomas in September and their parents and carers … Fantastic!
I went to Farsley Farfield Primary School to visit their farm and to see the work they are doing… Amazing!
I went to Kippax North Junior and Infant School to attend their ‘Green Day’ assembly and the opening of their new wind turbine… Awesome!

We need to understand, recognise and celebrate the talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful colleagues working across Leeds. We need to develop more rounded, more engaging ways of looking at our provision and focus less relentlessly on test and exam results. We must encourage creativity, imagination, passion and commitment and support colleagues who work with the future… our children and young people.
