Thoughtbubble festival

As part of the Leeds thought bubble festival (a celebration of comics and their art.) students in Year Six were invited to Mannigham Library to meet Imran Azhar the chief executive of AZcorp entertainment. AZcorp are based in Pakistan and create comic books about heroes of different nationalities,religions and races. The heroes in their comics help to solve local problems and encourage young people to take action around global issues.

During the workshop, we discussed problems within Bradford and created heroes and heroines that would help us solve our problems. We discussed the importance of tolerance and kindness and how everyday ordinary people can be heroes with small actions.

Watch out Atlas, superheroes are about!

Bradford headteacher chosen for key school support role

The headteacher and staff at Atlas Community Primary School have been selected for a top role supporting schools in challenging circumstances.

Caroline Carr is one of more than 70 headteachers to be appointed to the role of 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 additional leadership capability in other schools.

NLEs are deployed to suit the needs of each school needing support. The type of support provided is flexible and can sometimes involve NLEs becoming executive headteachers. They also have responsibility for developing the next generation of NLEs and national support schools.

Caroline Carr, Atlas Community primary school said: My appointment as a NLE is a real reflection of the hard work and dedication from all of the staff at Atlas and I look forward to our continued work across Bradford and beyond to ensure all children succeed and reach their potential.

Many NLEs/NSSs report improved outcomes at the schools they support.

Roger Pope, Chair of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, said:

“It’s fantastic that heads like Caroline Carr have the passion and ambition to help improve the life chances of young people, not just in their own but in other schools as well.

“The aim of national leaders of education is to drive improvement in underperforming schools. We now have over 1,200 NLEs and we’re working to increase this number further to spread educational excellence everywhere.”

Successful heads have been invited to attend a formal induction and training event for the role in driving school improvement.
