Managing Improving Primary Schools
Using Evidence-based Management
A practical handbook which senior staff in primary schools can use to support their activities in evidence-based management. There is increased emphasis on teachers monitoring the quality of teaching and learning, the Teacher Training Agency's direction is towards teaching as a research-based profession, and there is greater need to assess learning gains and evaluate year-on-year progress in schools. For headteachers, deputy heads, managers, Key Stage coordinators and subject coordinators this book will provide the guidance they need to conduct and act upon quality reviews and evidence- based analyses of pupils' learning and the quality of teaching.

'...this book poses an interesting question...If schools are the locus of self-management could this not include, to a greater extent, management and leadership of the curriculum?.' - School Leadership and Management
'The book will be deeply interesting to all primary heads and their senior colleagues. It demonstrates an enormous range of purposes, structures and modes of functioning for SMTs. - Ian Menter, Education Review
