The Inspiring Primaries family of schools provides us with a knowledgeable network of like-minded teachers all aspiring to improve outcomes for the children across South and West Leicestershire. Our networks of specialists give us a deep reservoir of subject knowledge and pedagogical expertise meaning the right support is always available for the next stage in our development towards outstanding classroom practice and subject leadership. Supported by this network, I have had the opportunity to aim much higher and much more rapidly than at any previous point in my career. I have been supported to gain qualifications in senior leadership to put those skills into practise through working alongside senior leaders in the Trust’s school improvement team and am now enjoying the opportunity to ready myself for the next stage in my career through sponsorship into gaining the NPQH. This focus on enabling meaningful CPD, and being given opportunities to use the new skills gained to practically improve outcomes, sets Inspiring Primaries apart.
