Written by school leaders, for school leaders, this book shares the work of ten practising, innovative school leaders. It offers insight into practical school developments that have been researched, trialled and reviewed to demonstrate their success at creating positive change.

- ‘Poverty Proofing’ by breaking down barriers to disadvantage
- Creating a new holistic approach to appraisal and quality assurance
- How to design and deliver a new cohesive whole school curriculum
- Headteacher stress, and how to survive
Innovative School Leadership: Transforming Practices is an indispensable resource for all current and aspiring to leaders wanting to provide the best learning environment for their whole school community.
