NAHT head features in fly-on-wall documentary

Head teacher in TV documentary
Sarah Moore of Oak Tree Primary, Nottinghamshire

A new fly-on-the-wall documentary on life in an English primary school airs this week. 

The five-part series called Head's Tales - A Week in the Life of a Head Teacher, begins tonight and runs every day this week on ITV News Central at 6pm. 

It follows the success of television documentaries on secondary school life, Educating Yorkshire and Educating Essex but this time, the attention is on primary education. 

Producers were given unprecedented access to film inside Oak Tree Primary School in Nottinghamshire where they followed head teacher and NAHT member Sarah Moore as she carried out her daily duties. 

The series claims to, ‘lift the lid on a role widely regarded as one of the toughest in education and show how a primary head juggles a raft of responsibilities’.
