Later I met Cllr Richard Harker and we went back to the David Lloyd Centre to see the East and North East secondary headteachers...

This group of colleagues are working together with us on the re-engineering of provision to deliver the National Challenge and ensure that all schools in Leeds achieve above the 2011 target that 30% of young people achieve 5A*-C at GCSE including English and mathematics. We are working on structural strategies for City of Leeds, Primrose and Parklands but the impact of any changes affect provision in South Leeds, Central Leeds and East and North East Leeds. This requires a more holistic and comprehensive approach but with that relentless and uncompromising short term focus on teaching, learning and standards for Years 9, 10 and 11.

I am particularly grateful to all those colleagues who are working with us to find sustainable and powerful solutions which will deliver great schools achieving great outcomes to serve these communities.
