I started the day at the Education Leeds Narrowing the Gap Conference at Elland Road...

It was absolutely brilliant to have so many of my talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful colleagues together to listen to some inspirational speakers and to share, learn and network. We also had two magical sessions with children from Castleton Primary School singing and children from Chapel Allerton Primary School encouraging everyone to Wake Up Shake Up. The speakers were Maggie Farrah, Operational Director with the National College for School Leadership, Kevan Collins, Director of Children's Services at Tower Hamlets Borough Council and Hardial Hayer, Headteacher at The Radclyffe School in Oldham.

My colleagues Mark Hopkins, Dorothy Smith and Dirk Gilleard had organised and delivered a great day which will help us continue to drive up standards across Leeds.
