Have your say

The headteacher and staff at Thrussington CE Primary School have been selected for a top role supporting schools needing help in challenging circumstances.

Liz Moore is one of 137 headteachers to be appointed to the role of National Leader of Education (NLE) in the latest recruitment round.

National Leaders of Education - along with staff in their designated National Support Schools - use their success and professionalism to provide additional leadership capability in other schools.

Mrs Moore said: “As a school community we’re very proud to be able to take on the role of a National Support School.”

Charlie Taylor, chief executive of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, said: “It’s great that heads like Liz Moore are willing to look beyond their own school gates to help more and more pupils achieve. “We have over 1,000 National Leaders of Education and their efforts are at the heart of a self-improving, school-led education system.

“School-to-school support is having a growing impact, with benefits for both the schools being supported and those providing the support.”
