The Westbrook Trust
National Support School
In 2016 Jane Heyes, the Chief Executive Officer of the Westbrook Trust, was designated as a National Leader of Education (NLE) and Brompton-Westbrook Primary School was allocated National Support School status. NLEs are outstanding headteachers who, together with the staff in their national support school (NSS), use their skills and experience to support schools in challenging circumstances. In addition to leading their own schools, NLEs work to increase the leadership capacity of other schools to help raise standards.
NLEs can be deployed in a number of ways and each deployment can be tailored to suit the needs of the school receiving support. NLEs can be contacted if you want to improve performance at your school. They will meet with the headteacher and senior staff from your school to discuss the challenges you face and what help is needed. Their work will be tailored in partnership with you.
They can get involved in different ways, including:
- working with your school alongside their staff
- working with your school on their own
- their staff working with your school under their initial direction
Please use the contact details below if you would like to discuss support for your school.
