Developing confident, respectful and successful young people
Andrea Arlidge, chief executive of Wellsway Multi Academy Trust, has been named a national leader of education (NLE), and Wellsway School has become a national support school and a national teaching school.
National leaders of education use their knowledge and experience to provide additional leadership capability in other schools in need of support.
Teaching schools work with partner schools in an alliance to provide teacher training and professional development.
Mrs Arlidge said: “We are delighted that the strength of Wellsway School and our multi academy trust has been recognised in this way. We are looking forward to developing our work as a teaching school, supporting school staff and new entrants to the teaching profession to make a difference in their schools and trusts.”
Schools Minister Lord Agnew said: “I’d like to congratulate Wellsway School and Andrea Arlidge on being appointed as a teaching school and a national leader of education. They should be very proud of this achievement.
“Teaching schools and national leaders of education are supporting other schools, attracting and training the best new teachers and developing the next generation of leaders.”
