I started the day having breakfast at Elland Road...

My colleague Chris Halsall had invited me to speak at the start of a conference for primary headteachers called 'Making Learning Irresistible - Curriculum Innovation in Primary Schools'.
The conference featured Gareth Mills from QCA talking about the Primary Curriculum Review and workshops sessions on 'a curriculum that matters' by colleagues from Morley Victoria Primary School, 'engaging pupils and parents in learning through learning logs' by colleagues from Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School, 'developing enterprise across the curriculum' by colleagues from Hunslet Moor Primary School and 'innovation through ICT' by colleagues from Robin Hood Primary School.

Interestingly there is so much great stuff going on that we could have run brilliant workshops featuring innovative and creative practice from schools across Leeds for the next few weeks. The challenge we face is how do we share and disseminate all the good things that are happening across the city to enable us to continue to build outstanding provision and deliver world class outcomes for all our children and young people.
