Book Description

First published in 1998, this volume focuses on the range of crucial role that the headteacher must fulfil as the leader. It has become apparent that being a good manager and teacher is not enough, the headteacher has to be able to lead and communicate the vision of the school to the staff, pupils, parents and governors. The role includes auditing the needs of the school and leading the process of planning to meet its targets, balancing quality of provision and raising standards within the limits of the school environment. The roles of team builder, motivator and systems thinker are also essential. Finally the headteacher has the role of developing staff, and promoting self-development linked with school improvement.
