Which system leaders do we deploy and what do they do?

School to School support (S2S), which may be commissioned by individual schools, Academy Trusts, the Bradford Primary Improvement Partnership (BPIP) or a Local Authority, is a significant and fundamental part of our work as a teaching school, and we are pleased to have a great many System Leaders (those with a formal designation and those without) working with us to support other schools.

We can offer our system leaders (Consultant Headteachers, National, Local and Specialist Leaders of Education to support a variety of school improvement needs.

National Leaders of Education (NLEs) are outstanding headteachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools (designated National Support Schools), use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances. In addition to leading their own schools, NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.

Local Leaders of Education

Local Leaders of Education (LLEs) help improve pupil outcomes through partnership working between schools and academies. Local Leaders of Education are successful headteachers who work alongside other heads to drive forward improvements and build capacity to ensure that improvements can be sustained.

Specialist Leaders of Education

Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) offer support to individuals and teams in similar roles in other schools. They are experienced middle and senior leaders who have demonstrated outstanding practice and have the skills to support others in similar contexts.

Leader of Excellent Practice (LEP)

LEPs are highly skilled teachers who work with other teachers to develop classroom expertise or share excellent practice in a specific area, e.g. e.g. Guided reading in Y4, SEN, EYFS outdoor provision. LEPs provide one-to-one support either in their own school, for example by being observed or sharing resources, or by visiting a teacher in another school to support learning and share resources.
