Teaching quality is key to raising standards in the classroom: the challenge for leaders is to ensure that high quality teaching is happening in every classroom, all the time.

This book outlines the priorities of excellent school leaders, those who not only produce excellent results, but who put in place effective systems so that other leaders are equally able to achieve such results.

By observing how school leaders brought schools from either ‘mediocre’ or ‘good’ all the way to ‘great’, the authors identified seven common areas of school leadership that improve pupil learning. These seven areas include data-driven instruction; observation and feedback; instructional planning; professional development; pupil culture; staff culture; and managing school leadership teams. 

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
