National Leaders of Education (NLEs)

National Leaders of Education (NLEs)

NLEs are outstanding head teachers or principals who, together with the staff in their schools, use their skills and expertise to support schools in challenging circumstances.


Nikki St John

I have been Headteacher of St Katharine’s CE Primary School since 2010 and I am keen to establish mutually rewarding partnerships with other schools. I am particularly passionate about the values, ethos and learning culture of the school and developing high standards and leadership through trust and relationships. As an advocate of a healthy, active school, I am also a Headteacher Ambassador for the Youth Sport Trust.

Various members of staff at St Katharine’s are SLEs and have worked with other schools locally in a range of areas including Early Years, English, maths, PE and science and are well-placed to support schools’ learning journeys and development.
