My colleague Carol Jordan, Director of Integrated Children's Services sent me this bit of great news...

"Dear Chris, The Teaching and Learning Centre had a really positive HMI visit today. Lots of really positive praise for the progress made in all areas and the excellent support from Education Leeds. Wendy Winterburn,  Kevin Payne, Mark Barnett, TLC staff and everyone else involved have all worked really hard to get to this position – really good progress. The HMI said they would come back in the Spring term as part of the inspection process to take them out of special measures. What a great result – in one year. Well done to everyone involved. Excellent news. Carol."

This is fantastic news because the provision for our young people with the most complex behaviour is the most difficlut to get right and to sustain. Colleagues like Carol, Wendy, Kevin and Mark have worked with the TLC team and together they have achieved something outstanding. Congratulations to everyone involved.
