Education Leader Sally Taylor Joins the ATLP as Interim CEO

Experienced education leader Sally Taylor is delighted to have been appointed interim chief executive officer of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ATLP). Sally is the outgoing director of education and commissioning for Birmingham City Council and the former assistant director for education for Oxfordshire County Council. She will be working closely with other senior leaders from the ATLP’s seven schools to continue providing outstanding education to 4,500 students. The former teacher, secondary headteacher, governor and local authority leader takes over the role on a temporary basis from Sir Chris Stone, and the pair will be working closely together during the handover period. Throughout her longstanding career, Sally has demonstrated a commitment to ensuring that all schools she has provided support and challenge to can provide the best possible education to the children and the communities that they serve. Commenting on her new position, Sally said: “The ATLP has always lead the way in school to school support. We have seven diverse academies that work together to bring outstanding educational opportunities to all our students. “The high levels of leadership and teaching across the partnership has resulted in our schools becoming more popular and in students achieving even better results. Together we will continue to raise standards and attainment, giving every child access to the highest quality of education.” Tim Sewell, chair of the ATLP Trust Board, said: “We’re very fortunate to have Sally on board and it’s a pleasure to welcome her to the ATLP. Sally is successful leader with a wealth of experience, a strong moral purpose and a wide understanding of education at all levels. We want to harness this talent to help support and develop our schools and communities, and to ensure that the partnership continues to flourish.”
