School Improvement

Working with you to improve

Nicola Hayden, Head teacher, Oliver Thomas Nursery School

Oliver Thomas Nursery School has been an integral member of the Alliance for several years. After reviewing how leadership Oliver Thomas worked, Head teacher Nicola Hayden was keen to see how working with an ELEYSP system leader could open up learning opportunities for her staff.

Working with Natasha Groom, one of the ELEYSP’s Specialist Leaders of Education, Nicola was challenged to consider how performance management could support her staff’s development and contribute to school improvement as well as provide a good induction for the new Deputy head who was just about to take up their role.

“Natasha (the SLE) listened, understood and worked with me to shape performance management for the particular needs of my school. Her incisive support helped give me clarity and confidence in creating a more holistic approach to school improvement.  I’ve been really inspired by the work we have done together and I know this is going to further strengthen our work as a school.”
