This week, Dominic Herrington has been confirmed as the interim National Schools Commissioner (NSC) following the retirement of Sir David Carter announced in April. Since 2014, Mr Herrington has been the regional schools’ commissioner for the East of England and South London and will continue overseeing this area of work. Discussing his appointment, Mr Herrington said that he was “looking forward to working with the regional schools’ commissioners in seven other areas of England to build on Sir David Carter’s achievements by continuing to challenge and support school leaders”.
The NSC leads the team of regional schools commissioners (RSCs) to:
- support the creation of new academies and free schools and recruiting high-quality academy sponsors
- improve the performance of underperforming academies and free schools
