SLA 2016 - 2017
We understand that education in Northumberland is unique. We are the largest and most sparsely populated county in England, with a diverse socio-economic profile and great variety of school leadership models.
Whether your school is:
• an academy,
• a first, primary, middle or high school
• part of a federation or trust
• serving a rural or urban community,
• facing significant challenges or already outstanding
Our experience of working with you means our team understands your context and the particular challenges you face. In a time of significant educational change, making sense of national policies and directives, and navigating a successful pathway can require the support of a team that understands your issues and has a proven track record of working successfully across Northumberland.
