Towards Effective Subject Leadership in Primary Schools Summary


Towards Effective Subject Leadership in Primary Schools by Derek Bell

This book examines the post of subject leader in primary schools in the light of the four key areas defined by National Standards for Subject Leadership:

* strategic direction and development
* teaching and learning
* leading and managing staff
* efficient and effective deployment of staff

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.

The book will be of value to all primary school teachers, and especially subject leaders.
