School to School Support - SLEs

SLEs are experienced middle or senior leaders with a specialism (for example, maths, initial teacher training, behaviour).

While other roles (for example, advanced skills teachers) focused on developing classroom expertise, this role is about developing other leaders so that they have the skills to lead their own teams and improve practice in their own schools.

You should contact an SLE if you want to improve the leadership in a specific subject or specialist area in your school.

SLEs can provide one-to-one or group support. Their work could involve a variety of activities, such as:

data analysis
facilitating and training
joint action planning
