This morning I visited Kerr Mackie Primary School...

It was great to meet Angela Ronicle, the headteacher, and Gillian Hayward, the chair of governors, and talk about the opportunities and challenges we are facing. We also looked around the school to see the real progress the school is making under Angela's skilful leadership. The quality of the work in the Foundation Stage, the quality of teaching and learning and the culture and ethos around the school is really impressive. Angela and her team are building brilliant provision by establishing the systems and procedures needed to secure consistency.

It's true, for every school in Leeds, that consistency is our biggest challenge and securing it will ensure that outcomes continue to improve, that teaching and learning further develops and that every classroom releases the WOW factor and the magic and potential in our wonderful children.
