Leading the Curriculum in the Primary School

First Edition

September 2005 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
'The book is a good introduction to anyone taking on middle leadership in the primary sector, and will be useful to heads and deputies who are considering how to organise their schools in the face continuing change and increasing accountability' - Times Educational Supplement

In recent years, there has been an acknowledgement of the need for teachers to develop management and leadership skills in addition to specialized subject knowledge, to achieve a state where they possess transferable skills that can be employed in co-ordinating any area of the primary curriculum. This book will provide trainees, NQTs and experienced teachers with the management and leadership techniques that they will need in order to develop, with appropriate experience and opportunities, into subject leaders or effective members of a senior management team.

The emphasis in this book is on the practical techniques and strategies of curriculum leadership. At all levels of experience, from establishing a direction through working with resources to leading and motivating colleagues, this book deals with the theoretical, practical and technological issues facing teachers as they create and manage curricula. This book is an invaluable resource for trainees and teachers at every level as they confront the rapidly shifting demands of their profession.
