The goal of the national leaders of education is to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards. This is one part of the government's plan to give schools a central role in developing a self-improving and sustainable school system.
National Leaders in Education usually work with schools identified as being in need of significant improvement. The work they do is tailored to the individual needs of the school and can include:
Dr Robert Sykes - Thornden School
Mr Jonathan de Sausmarez - the Romsey School
