School to School Support


Our Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) play an important part in our school to school support work by offering high quality support to peers in other schools. SLEs are outstanding middle and senior leaders with specialisms in a particular field. They can help with school development and improvement by working with other schools in their field of expertise and assist in the spreading of best practice.
