I am delighted to announce that our headteacher, Mrs Roberts, has been recognised by the National College of Teaching and Leadership as being an exceptional leader and has been selected for a top role as a National Leader of Education (NLE).
Consequently, the school has been designated as a national support school (NSS).
As a NSS, with an NLE as our headteacher, we will support schools in challenging situations and provide additional leadership capabilities.
We have always supported other schools, this is just a national recognition of all the super work Mrs Roberts and all the staff have done.
Roger Pope, Chair of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, said:
“It’s fantastic that heads like Sharon Roberts have the passion and ambition to help improve the life chances of young people, not just in their own but in other schools as well.”
“The aim of national leaders of education is to drive improvement in underperforming schools. We now have over 1,200 NLEs and we’re working to increase this number further to spread educational excellence everywhere.”
I’m sure you’ll join me in celebrating this success for the school.
