This morning I visited Hillcrest Pprimary School...

I had arranged to visit the school to see Teena Thompson, who was started as headteacher at this vibrant, multi-cultural school in April. It was great to walk around the school with Teena and meet some of her children and some of her team. The culture and atmosphere around the school was purposeful and positive and I also had the opportunity to see the wonderful changes that have been made to Space@, the arts and sports community space at the school, which includes the brilliant 'Playing for Success' base. It was really encouraging to meet Teena who brings a great deal of experience to Leeds and is passionate about values based education. I know that under Teena's intelligent and sensitive leadership the school will continue to develop, building on some really good early years provision, to become a brilliant learning place where every child is happy, healthy, safe and increasingly successful.
