I attended the end of term celebrations at the Elmete Centre today...

It was an opportunity to reflect on another great year with colleagues from all areas of school improvement, learning communities and extended services. It was also the opportunity to thank Carol Stagg and Chris Pollard who have both made an enormous contribution to learning in Leeds. Carol Stagg has transformed the work of the learning communities team; a great team of colleagues who are working at the cutting edge of creativity, enterprise and information technology and achieving really impressive outcomes for target groups of young people through the CLCs. Chris has brilliantly led the National Strategies team; a great team of colleagues delivering some fantastic programmes and achieving wonderful outcomes for children and young people across the city. Many colleagues from these teams are also leaving us to take up posts in schools, children's services and agencies where they will be able to continue to make a real difference and share the Education Leeds magic.

We wish Carol, Chris and everyone else leaving us this term every success in the future... whatever it holds!
