Heading Towards Excellence: A Toolkit for School Management

Front Cover
Trentham Books, 2002 - Education - 84 pages
This book identifies the ways to make good practice in school management exceptionally good. The headteacher of a secondary school in northern England has set out the processes by which he and his management team, pastoral and departmental heads, teachers and others members of the staff, and the students and governors, worked to evaluate and improve their practice. Working initially from the documented good practice in management, they moved towards developing their own model of evaluation. In Part 1 of this book, John Rowling describes the theoretical background to the model, the conditions required for it to function to full effect, and the framework by which achievement - of every member of the school, beginning with the headteacher - can be measured.
