I spent the morning in Leeds with a small group of Labour party local authority governors...

I had been asked to attend the session which was organised by Cllr Jane Dowson and attended by Cllr Judith Blake, Cllr Peter Gruen and Cllr Lisa Mulherin. We talked about the progress we have made over the last ten years and the challenges that remain in delivering world class outcomes for children in Leeds. We also talked about the new Government's policies and the implications of the comprehensive spending review on schools, extended services, the capital programme and the Council's children's services.

It was great to spend a couple of hours with this group of governors who as volunteers give so much time to our schools and make such a difference.
