"New measures to encourage head teachers to take on responsibility for more than one school are coming into force. They're seen as an incentive for so-called super heads to turn around failing schools. Correspondent Rajini Vaidyanathan visits Harefield in Greater London to report on the school which, after it became an academy, has seen a marked improvement in results."
It is fantastic to see the successes of The Harefield Academy featured in the national media. Lynn Gadd has also featured on BBC News and BBC Online in the last couple of weeks and we hope to stream these videos for you soon in our Video Gallery.
