Affable and so unassuming that when we ask him to describe his leadership style he calls in his PA, settles her in an armchair and closes the door on his way out. ‘Approachable and informal,’ she smiles, as soon as the latch clicks; adjectives bandied about by parents include ‘child-centred’, ‘fair’ and ‘proactive’.
