Top head teachers to join struggling schools

January 16, 2014 1:59 pm

The Government will announce that around 100 top head teachers are to be parachuted into struggling schools. Schools Minister David Laws has said that the best headteachers will be offered more pay to raise education standards in the toughest schools. The policy was first put forward by deputy prime minister Nick Clegg in October last year, who announced plans for a “champions league of head teachers, made up of heads and deputy heads, who will stand ready to move to schools in challenging circumstances that need outstanding leaders”.
