The St. Bart’s latest NLE designation
13 July 2017
Lisa Sarikaya, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Operations and Executive Principal of Belgrave St. Bartholomew’s Academy and Westfield Nursery School, has been designated as a National Leader of Education (NLE) in the latest recruitment round. NLEs along with staff in their school – designated a national support school (NSS) – use their success and professionalism to provide school-to-school support to schools in challenging circumstances. Belgrave St Bartholomew’s Academy is a cohort two teaching school and has a number of staff designated as specialist leaders of education who provide outreach support to schools in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, Cheshire and Shropshire. The benefits of being a national support school mean staff have to be outward-looking and raise the practice of all staff as many schools/individuals come to look around the school and observe the learning.
For the last eight years, the team at Saint Nathaniel’s Academy has been working with pupils to develop and transform the school’s garden into a valuable, child-safe asset that is much-loved by its many pupils.
Forty children from across the Trust attended Rugby Development Training hosted by Longton Rugby Club.
The first of March saw two new academies join the St. Bart’s family – Whitchurch CE Infant and Nursery Academy and Whitchurch CE Junior Academy.
