This lively, practical account explores the vital aspects of the assistant or deputy headteacher’s role, which often means playing piggy-in-the-middle to a variety of school stakeholders, including the headteacher, other senior managers, the teaching staff, parents and local authority advisors, governors and pupils. The author gives practical tips on how to organise yourself well when the pressure to perform multiple tasks simultaneously is high, such as how to lead and manage major strategic changes, do a good presentation to staff on a training day, and give a rogue pupil an effective telling-off. The book also covers how to apply for a senior management job and successfully get through the stringent written selection criteria and complex interview process. This is a highly informative text for any aspiring subject leader or middle manager in the primary or secondary sector. It will also be of interest to existing senior managers who want to reflect on the way they are doing their job already.

The Under Representation Of Black And Minority Ethnic Educators In Education

The Under-Representation of Black and Minority Ethnic Educators in Education evidences that discrimination at an individual, institutional and structural level is still experienced in the leadership of children’s learning. The analysis evaluates the extent to which under-representation is a result of chance, coincidence or design. Based on original research using a mixed-methods approach, and drawing on Critical Race Theory this book examines the under-representation of Black and minority ethnic (BAME) educators in education. It identifies over 40 separate codes emerging from interviews with BAME leaders in children’s learning. These codes include surveillance, isolation, awareness of their position, the need to be better, professional development, the complexity of racism and the difficulties of talking about racism. The book contributes to educational leadership in questioning the extent to which equitable outcomes can be delivered when the education service is itself a site and source of inequality and discrimination. It brings to front the suppressed narratives of under-representation of people of colour and offers insights based on comprehensive data collection. This book will be of great interest for academics, researchers, and post-graduate students in the fields of education management and leadership, Critical Race Theory, and the Sociology of Education.

To Survive Is Victory

‘In those days we dedicated our whole lives to The Party. We put it first, before anything else, whether that was family, love, or even life itself. I will tell you a fact about the path my life has taken – to survive is victory!’ This is the true account of the life of Lin Xiangbei, during a century of tumultuous changes in China. Lin was born in 1918 in Yunan, a small town in north-east Sichuan Province. In 1938, under the influence of a remarkable figure later known as ‘The Double Gun Woman’, Lin became a committed Communist. He worked tirelessly as an underground agent, believing the ideals of Communism would bring a better, fairer society to the people of China. But in 1957 Lin was accused of being a ‘Rightist’, spent several years in and out of labour camps, and was almost broken by the experience. Then came the decade-long nightmare that was the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. And yet, through it all, Lin Xiangbei remains committed to the principles of Communism and is proud of his country today. His account gives us not only a glimpse into the lives of ordinary people in twentieth-century China, but also an insight into the hardship, fear and insecurity of those years – and the comradeship, self-sacrifice and heroism of the people around him.

Educational Inclusion As Action Research

"One of the most accessible features of the book is the incorporation of vignettes of real-life action research enquiries, and in some cases, drawing on the field notes an journals kept by the teachers themselves. There is much to welcome in this book... There is an engaging honesty of tone... an abiding sense of authenticity in the author's voice; this is writing which comes out of long professional experience of teaching pupils with learning difficulties and challenging behaviour, and equal experience of facilitating action research enquiries in her practice as a teacher educator." European Journal of Special Needs Education In its detailed elaboration of action research as a basis for teacher professional development this book locates inclusive practice in a discursive process that continually interprets its meaning while at the same time inevitably changes educational cultures. The book starts by linking government policy with social justice and inclusion issues and argues that inclusion is currently promoted via a democratic political process, which needs to be complemented at a professional level through the demonstration of democratic and inclusive procedures in the investigatory process itself. The text argues for: *action research as a means of implementing and evaluating inclusive practice in classrooms and schools *action research as an interpretive and discursive process *inclusion related to specific educational contexts *inclusion as responsive to change and improvement at any level This book is ideal for postgraduate students, teachers and educational professionals who need a basis for developing inclusive practice.

The true, heartbreaking struggle of a boys journey from childhood to adulthood is captured here through the eyes of his mother. This compelling and moving journey follows Sam through the onset of the emotional and behavioural disorder that shadows him through preschool, primary, and secondary education, along with the exclusions they incur. The damaging spiral of rejection continues through behavioural correction centres and residential school and, as he gets older, college, drugs, violence, attempted suicides, law courts, and ultimately prison. It is also an inspirational story of a family brought to the edge of endurance; of bonds stretched to the breaking point; of a stepfathers struggle to let go of his own child, accept two others, and learn to love again; and of a brothers indomitable resilience to rise above the all-encompassing chaos and destruction surrounding him, to survive and succeed on his own path. Sams long, uncompromising determination to push everyone and everything away met his mothers equally unwavering determination to fight, not only for her son but for her family. He has been her greatest teacher. Poignant, thought-provoking, and intense, this raw, no-holds-barred story will make you laugh and cry.

Why I Started A Small School

‘Anyone interested in children and their education should read this’. More than 20 years ago, long before the days of the UK’s government funded free schools, Rosalyn Spencer was the driving force behind the setting up of a non-fee paying ‘alternative’ small school. She had felt compelled to do this, not only because of the difficulties her 9 year old son was facing in mainstream education, and painful memories of her own schooling, but also because of concerns other parents had shared with her about problems their children were experiencing. Whereas the current free schools are generously funded by the government, Rosalyn opened the school with 12 children with virtually no funding at all. In this book, the first in a series of three, Rosalyn tells her personal story leading up to the opening of the small school. It demonstrates some of the failings of the education system and highlights the need for alternative approaches. Her story will appeal to childcare professionals, teachers, parents and anybody who enjoys reading memoirs and narrative non-fiction. Following its release as an ebook in March 2013 it received excellent reviews and became an Amazon Number 1 Best Seller.

In this book, secondary headteachers present their thoughts on headship. With the Education Reform Act, Local Management of Schools and the enormously increased role of school governors, to say nothing of the National Curriculum, headteachers today face an exceptionally difficult and complex task. The heads in this book run schools both large and small; urban, rural and suburban; with and without ethnic minority pupils. The heads themselves are of widely differing ages, cultures and backgrounds. Each presents a fascinating account of their school and its community, details of the management of their school, the organization of learning, the relationships between head, staff, pupils and parents and, most important of all, their own unique and personal reflections on headship. It is the companion volume to The Primary Head, by the same editors.
