National Support School

The National College for Teaching and School Leadership has designated St Paul’s CE Primary as a National Support School and the headteacher, Mr Teale as a National Leader of Education.  (February 2015)

The National Leaders of Education (NLEs) and National Support Schools Programme (NSS) is about using people’s skills to make a difference to the educational experience of more children.

In addition to running their own outstanding schools, NLEs work with their National Support School staff in schools that are facing challenging circumstances. They and their team work to increase the leadership capacity in these schools and help to raise standards.
