This is both a study of leadership and a research methods text. It offers an analytical description of a primary headteacher at work over the course of one school year. Using a mix of participant-observation and interviews, the book provides a portrait of this head's approach to his work - his background, beliefs, the school as a context, what he did, how he dealt with change and development, power and the personal dimension of headship. The portrait is matched to the contemporary literature and an hypothesis is formulated about primary headship and is then used to critique existing ideas about school leadership. The book also suggests ways of developing heads and school teachers.

This text calls for a broader approach to comparative educational administration: one which uses culture as the principle means of analysis. The articles collected by Allan Walker and Clive Dimmock detail the educational practices and outcomes of other systems while taking into account the mediating influence of culture. In this way, these essays stress the specific aspects of the cultures studied, and map out common ground for the study of administrators' values, beliefs, and actions.

In Making the Leap, Dr Jill Berry offers practical advice which will be invaluable to anyone considering headship, drawing on her personal experience, her doctoral research and her extensive reading on the subject. Are you considering headship? Are you looking for advice about whether that would be a good career move for you? Maybe you’re applying for roles, or have secured one and are wondering how to manage the transition. Jill believes that the qualities that make you a good teacher are closely related to those which will serve you well in leadership. Every teacher is, in fact, a leader of learning within their own classroom. As your career progresses and you move from one leadership role to another, your sphere of influence gradually grows. You will have the chance to learn, to grow, to prove yourself. You will make mistakes and survive them. Headship is demanding, but it is also extremely rewarding: this book will encourage you to be clear-sighted about the challenges and responsibilities that lie ahead. Managing the transition from deputy to first-time headship successfully will ensure that you are on the most positive trajectory as you continue your leadership journey. In Jill’s experience, new heads often ask themselves similar questions. How can I balance the two roles as I begin to hand over my senior leader responsibilities and, at the same time, begin to assume the mantle of the head? How can I establish the most positive and productive relationship with the outgoing head, so that confidence is maintained and the school is energised, rather than threatened, by the change of school leader? How can I ensure the early months and years of headship are as successful as possible, so that the school develops and grows even stronger under my leadership? This book will answer all those questions and more. Suitable for teachers, middle leaders and senior leaders who are considering school headship. Contents include: 1. Introduction: making the leap – why would you want to? Spheres of influence and what is distinctive about headship, my own experience, my research; 2. Applying for headship: key principles of making a successful application, deciding what to apply for, making a strong written application, preparing for and performing well at interview; 3. Managing the lead-in period: the challenges of finding the balance in the period between appointment and formally taking up the role, the developing relationship with your predecessor, the opportunities of the lead-in period, the challenges of the lead-in period, and sources of support and strategies; 4. The early months in post: ‘inheriting’ the role versus ‘inhabiting’ the role, learning to lead in a new context, navigating the differences between deputy headship and headship, continuing to build the bridge as you walk on it; 5. Established headship and beyond: moving beyond being the ‘new head’, making the most of the joy of headship, balance and sustainability, next steps?

School reform is a top priority for governments today. This timely and challenging book, edited by leading international researchers, Kathryn Riley and Karen Seashore Louis, offers a rich comparative perspective on leadership for change and school reform. Contributors form North America, Europe and Australia demonstrate how school leadership is influenced by global pressures, differing national and state contexts and local concerns. They illustrate the limitations of reform initiatives which focus on school leaders tot he exclusion of the many other organisations which affect school, such as national and local governments, professional associations and school communities. This book raises some important questions such as: *How can school leaders create intelligent, thinking schools? *How can leadership and learning be linked together? *What are the characteristics of effective local education authorities and school districts? *What is the role of teacher organisations in educational reform and change? *What happens if businesses, teachers, parents and local communities have different views of what makes a good school? The text illustrates the ways in which leadership is rooted in learning, and identifies new directions for school leadership. It challenges conventional notions of leadership, offering an expanded view, which sees leadership just as an individual role-based function, but as a network of relationships among people, structures and cultures. This lively and provocative book should be read by all those interested in education reform.

Through presenting what is actually happening in primary schools in contrast to prescribed educational orthodoxies, this book makes a vital contribution to the debate on the future of primary education.

The book combines existing research data and new material gathered by the authors. It presents the underpinning principles and analyses the complex set of roles and responsibilities undertaken by subject leaders. Most importantly it provides practical advice for subject leaders illustrated by a series of case studies and tasks which are addressed directly to subject leaders. The authors have taken a generic approach, looking at issues such as changing roles and responsibilities, planning for teaching and learning, working with colleagues and others, managing resources and bringing about school improvement, that have to be addressed by all subject leaders whatever their particular area of responsibility. Throughout the book emphasises the importance of leadership, children's learning, professional development and collaboration.

Being a writer means being a reader, articulating stories and characters, listening to tales and learning from other writers. Through teaching exciting and engaging lessons you can help children to discover stories, create worlds, record events, mould characters and inspire each other as writers. Inspiring Writing in Primary Schools helps you to teach writing and to know what a good writing lesson looks and feels like. It gives you all the background theory you need to encourage purposeful writing across the curriculum. It includes exemplar lessons and offers them alongside a detailed exploration of what makes them good, and the theory behind them. As a teacher or trainee teacher, you can respond more imaginatively to the way you approach and teach writing. This text will help you to seize the opportunity of the new curriculum and inspire fabulous writing in your classroom. "Packed with accessible advice, engaging examples of research-informed practice and new ideas for ways to involve and support young writers, it offers primary teachers a breath of fresh air. Emerging from the memorable work of BookTrust’s Everybody Writes initiative (which was co-led by Liz Chamberlain) and drawing on her own doctoral research (which involved exploring three young writers’ practices at home and at school), the resultant mix of practice and theory - theory and practice is very energising. The authors take a real world view of writing and recognise and respect each child as a writer and each teacher as a professional - a potentially creative pedagogue." - Teresa Cremin

School leadership is undergoing significant change as headteachers respond to new opportunities and challenges offered to or imposed on them as a result of government policy. There have been increasing calls for transformational change to redesign the school system to provide a suitable workforce for the knowledge economy and to manage the anticipated shortage of future school leaders. Sue Robinson combines her professional experience as a practising primary headteacher and National Leader of Education with recent research into the impact of government policy on the roles of primary heads to offer an analysis of the shifting nature of school leadership. Headteachers have taken advantage of roles available including consultancy, leadership of academies and federations and children's centres. Including interview material with 27 'outstanding' primary headteachers, this is the first book combining research and practitioner insight to show how: - heads have managed the educational agenda- how they have built capacity in school to sustain their new internal and external roles - their motivations, insights and experiences- the implications for government educational policy and leadership development
