Leadership In Challenging Circumstances - St Aidan's Primary

Description

Staff at St Aidan's Primary in Gateshead explain what leadership means to a school serving a community in the top five per cent of Britain's most deprived areas.

Most pupils enter the school with below average skills and come from single parent households. Headteacher Lesley Steele believes the school's success is a result of its commitment to shared leadership.

Professor John Macbeath, chair of educational leadership at the University of Cambridge, offers an insight into how problems arising from being in a challenging area are being tackled.
