This morning I spent some time with our Integrated Children's Services team leaders...

I wanted to talk to them about the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead as we move towards the new children's services directorate. I also wanted to reassure them about the brilliant work they have been doing for children with special educational needs and disabilities and encourage them to share and celebrate the outstanding practice we have here in Leeds. I wanted to encourage them to continue to 'Think Team' and recognise that everything they are doing is everyones issue... improving attendance, managing behaviour, assessing and supporting childrens special needs and disabilities... and that it was all about school improvement, personalisation and our search for excellence in everything we are doing.

These are great colleagues working with some of our most special and most challenging young people.
