The Executive Head Teacher of Harton is a National Leader of Education (NLE) who has supported leadership and whole school improvement in three local schools. The Headteacher of Mortimer Primary, our partner Teaching School who takes strategic lead for primary developments, is also a National Leader of Education. Adding further leadership and staff development capacity are a team thirty two Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) from a range of schools, subjects and phases.
As the only designated Training School in the North East we have seven senior staff accredited by the National College of Teaching and Leadership to train SLEs and who to date have trained almost 600 SLEs from across the region. We are also currently leading on a North East Teaching Schools pilot to train further SLE trainers across the region.
