1 The School-led system and NLG Bernard Tomkins

2 What is a school-led system?  “We have many excellent schools in this country –But there are still too many that are falling behind and failing their children - large numbers of whom are leaving school without basic literacy and numeracy skills. “  Improvement driven from within –Outstanding school leaders are the most effective agents for positive change in education –Working in partnership to build capacity and raise standards across the system

3 How will it be achieved? System leadership  Teaching schools – 351  Teaching school alliances - 298  National leaders of education - 863  Local leaders of education – 1,894  Specialist leaders of education – 2,536  National leaders of governance - 250

4 What is system leadership?  System leaders care about, and work for, the success of all children not just those in their own school  Some system leadership roles are undertaken by those with formal designations. For example SLEs, LLEs, NLEs and NLG are designated against strict criteria  Some leaders undertake system leadership roles at the request of the local authority, diocese or another school

5 System leadership isn’t parachuting in to take over recognises the importance of leadership in school improvement

6 System leadership is structured on:  School leaders AND their schools being the agents of school-to-school improvement  Peer to peer support  Working together

7 Increasing focus on governance  Governance often found wanting in weak schools –In around 40% of schools, governance is not as strong as it should be. (based upon 9 criteria)  High quality governance is crucial –External review of governance –National College is now an executive arm of the DfE

8 DfE input for improving governance  Introduction of new regulations for constitution of governing bodies - Sept 2012  Piloting external reviews of governance and release of resources to open market - Feb 2013  Introduction of Ofsted school data dashboard to provide stakeholders with access to data - Feb 2013  An expanded NLG and National College training offer, including free training workshops for governors and a training programme for Clerks - Jul 2014 2

9 What does an NLG do?  “National leaders of governance are highly effective chairs of governors, who use their skills and experience to support chairs of governors in other schools and academies.”  NLG is requested to assist by school, GB, LA or Diocese.  NLG deals with COG only.  Pre – agreed outcome. (not pathway)  Both supported COG, and the COG providing support raise standards.  Providing support can be some of the best personal development available as it requires you to reflect on your own practice, and observe both good and bad practice in other schools.  Reviews of Governance.

10 NLG as system leaders  NLG are making a difference –Since April 2012, NLG have supported 371 schools; 209 of these deployments are now complete. –91% supported chairs were satisfied or very satisfied with the support they received from the NLG  The role is part of the school-led, self-improving system – agents of improvement in governance
