Forthcoming election for the East Midlands Region's Regional Schools Commissioner's Headteacher Board

DSAT CEO Paul Stone will be standing for the election to the East Midlands RSC Headteacher Board in the hope of contributing advice, scrutiny and challenge guided by his experience from establishing and leading Discovery Schools Academy Trust. 

Paul Stone said ”My decision to stand derives from my conviction that I have the experience and moral purpose needed for this role. I believe in the power of a school-led system and I understand the organisational challenges, decisions and risks confronting MATs as they strive to improve the life chances of our children”. 

“My experience has shown me that growth and sustainable school improvement require patience, resilience and sensitive, effective change management to empower school improvement outcomes in all areas. Amongst all of this, MAT leaders need to remain focused on placing children’s wellbeing and achievement at the heart of all decision making, core principles I am proud to act on every day. As a representative on the Headteacher Board, I would contribute advice, scrutiny and challenge that would be guided by authentic experience and the challenge of establishing and leading a thriving trust”. 

Results of the election are due to be published later in the Autumn term.
