Made in partnership with academics and primary school teachers working on the frontline from around the globe, this book is threaded with honest practitioner voices as the big educational issues are boiled down and explored. Chapters cover day-to-day organisation such as planning, subject knowledge, setting homework, and behaviour management strategies, right through to considering how we can best support children’s mental health and staff wellbeing.
