During his 13 year headship at Escola Jose Leite Barros in north-east Brazil, Antonio Fernando Santos Silva dramatically transformed the school into a successful institution.

Escola Jose Leite Barros is now a democratically-run institution, with committed staff and a focus on school self-evaluation. Coordinator of 65 schools in the region, Antonio has also visited schools in England as part of an international school leadership project.

In this video, we see an English teacher observing a history teacher as they deliver a class about Brazilian presidents, followed by the feedback session - a discussion among teachers in the staffroom.

This video is part of a series looking at inspirational headteachers and the positive effect their leadership has had on the schools they've worked with.
