I finished the day with colleagues from the NAHT...

It was great to be able to talk about the brilliant work that is going on in schools across Leeds and to discuss some of the challenges headteacher colleagues are facing. We must constantly strive for more and continue our relentless and uncompromising focus on standards and outcomes. We need to work together to celebrate the real excellence of what we do and to develop more intelligent accountability systems. We need to continue to develop strong, trusting relationships where it is acceptable to ask for help. We need to adopt the same approach to headteachers and colleagues in schools as we do for our children; seeing potential and possibilities and providing strong, creative and effective support alongside the challenge.
