SLEs are a designation acknowledging the important role of middle and senior leaders in supporting their peers.  They are excellent professionals in leadership positions below the headteacher, with the capacity, capability and commitment to work beyond their own school.

This type of work might involve:

  • Self –Starter work within clusters, within a MAT, cross school CPD activities, subject network meetings, NQT activities, Primary liaison, and cluster support.
  • Cambridge Teaching School Network directed and commissioned School to School work.

SLEs are outstanding in a particular area, for example: Core Subject delivery, a subject specialism; data for achievement, Primary leadership, inclusion; ITT mentoring; performance management; behaviour; school business management.
