Local Leaders of Education (LLEs)
LLEs are successful headteachers who are able to support other headteachers. An LLE must be judged to be a good serving headteacher with at least three years’ experience and have sufficient capacity to support other schools.
Typical activities include:
negotiating objectives for improvement
coaching and mentoring the headteacher to develop skills, judgement and professional effectiveness
supporting or arranging coaching or training for staff in the supported school
I am currently headteacher at Edward Francis Primary School - a two form intake school close to Rayleigh High Street which came into existence after an amalgamation in 2012 which I led the schools through. I have been a headteacher for over ten years and believe that I am particularly strong in analysing data, managing human & financial resources and securing good progress & attainment. In recent years I have enjoyed supporting other local schools in a peer reviewing arrangement and have participated in local authority reviews. I have also recently been temporarily seconded to a local school for a term, whilst a substantive headteacher was appointed, during which they secured a favourable Ofsted judgement.
I am the Headteacher of Edwards Hall Primary School, a two form entry school on the outskirts of Southend. In my time at the school I have taken it from Special Measures to Good. The school’s ethos is based on a culture of taking risks and learning from mistakes with ‘Characteristics of Effective Learning’ embedded across the school. Prior to this, I was the Headteacher of Bonnygate Primary School in Thurrock. I have worked as a School Support Partner in Southend and a School Improvement Partner in Essex. These roles included mentoring and coaching staff; monitoring the quality of teaching and learning; supporting schools with restructuring; advising on the Headteacher Appraisal process and leading on peer reviews. I have also delivered training for school leadership teams and governors on assessment and the use of data to bring about school improvement. I represented the primary sector on the Expert Subject Advisory Groups’ Standards Working Party, producing recommendations on revised Teaching Standards for the Chartered College of Teaching.
