No, it’s not about good enough anymore!
We need to build networks and connections that collect, share and distribute best practice and build consistently excellent provision that releases the magic in our children and young people.
I am constantly surprised by the quality of what I see in schools in Sheffield, Nottingham, Leeds, York and Lincoln. I am also surprised how reluctant colleagues are to tell their stories and shout about the great work they are doing. We need to share our stories and prove through evidence, research and outcomes that we can create excellence, we can deliver world class outcomes and we can release the potential and magic in our children, young people and colleagues. And let's be clear about it, it’s not about good enough anymore, everything we do must be outstanding.
