We have been informed today that the Department for Education have approved Catherine Lewis our Executive Headteacher as a designated National Leader of Education (NLE) and The Russett School as a National Support School (NSS).

NLEs are outstanding headteachers who, together with the staff in their national support school (NSS), use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances. In addition to leading their own schools NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.
