National Support School

National Support School

In 2011 Mrs Angela Jefferies was recognised by the National College for School Leadership as a National Leader of Education (NLE).

NLEs use their success and professionalism as school leaders, along with the staff in their school - designated a National Support School - to provide additional leadership capability in struggling schools or those in transition to federation or academy status. The deployment is tailor made to suit the needs of each school. The type of support provided is flexible and can involve NLEs becoming acting or executive headteacher of the client school or schools. They also have responsibility for bringing on the next generation of NLEs and national support schools.

“School-to-school support is having a growing impact across the education system and this is thanks to the hard work and dedication of all those involved. Helping other school leaders in this way is admirable and something I’d encourage other heads to consider.”

Many in the National Leaders of Education/National Support Schools Programme see improvements in exam results at both the support and client schools with progress achieved in excess of the improvements nationally.
