Throckley Primary as a National Support School

National Leaders of Education

National leaders of education (NLEs) are strong school leaders, who have experience of effectively supporting schools in challenging circumstances. NLEs work alongside teaching schools and other system leaders to provide high-quality support to those who need it most.

In December 2016, the National College designated Julie Stuart an NLE and Throckley Primary a National Support School.  This designation includes the NLE being a Pupil Premium Reviewer.  Pupil Premium Reviewers work with a school to improve their Pupil Premium strategy so that they spend the funding on approaches shown to be effective in improving the achievement of disadvantaged pupils.

National Support Schools

When Julie Stuart was selected as an NLE, the school became a national support school (NSS). This designation recognises that staff in the school are likely to work alongside the NLE in any support they may provide.

We are strategic partners with two Teaching Schools.  Please follow the links below for further information:
