I moved on again to see Simon Flowers, headteacher at Carr Manor High School, to talk about the challenges and opportunities we face...

It is great to be able to spend time at Carr Manor with Simon and to walk around the school and see the total transformation that has happened under Simon's passionate, dynamic and determined leadership. What has been achieved by the team at Carr Manor is evidence of what is possible with great leadership, a strong and relentless focus on teaching and learning, behaviour and standards, coaching and relationships and an unshakeable belief in what is possible. It was a great session which really helped me think about the areas we need to explore and manage as we build the team around the child, the team around the family and most importantly the team around the school as we reinvent, re-imagine and renew children's services here in Leeds.

We agreed that above all at times like this we need to talk more, to share more, to network more, to celebrate more and to continue to build on the brilliant work we have been doing together to ensure that every child and young person is happy, healthy, safe and increasingly successful... whatever it takes.
