Dee Reid, Jon Crampton and I met with Debbie Leigh today...

Debbie is the new education journalist at the Yorkshire Evening Post and we were keen to establish a relationship with Debbie to ensure that we help her understand the key issues facing us here in Leeds and celebrate the best provision, practice and initiatives. We talked about the current round of consultations, the National Challenge schools, the Stephen Lawrence Education Standard, our Healthy Schools work, 'The Power of Me', our intergenerational work, Leeds Mentoring, our behaviour and attendance initiatives, Investors in Pupils and much, much more.

It was great meeting Debbie and I hope colleagues will invite her into their schools to help her understand the brilliant work we are doing and see some of the wonderful learning places we are doing it in. I hope they will also give her opportunities to meet some of our extra-ordinary young people.
