The curriculum is the driving force for excellent teaching and learning in any school. Yet, in primary schools, the curriculum is often led by class teachers who have little or no time to give to this vital part of their role. Subject leaders have the potential to rapidly improve the way a curriculum is taught, but the challenges they face can seem insurmountable.

The Practical Guide to Getting Subject Leaders to THRIVE! tackles these issues head-on with a framework rooted in educational research. Sebastian Olway's six-step THRIVE framework provides school leaders with a structure to support subject leaders and unlock their potential. The framework can also be used to guide an impactful series of professional development meetings, or to offer strategies, tips and resources for individual subject leaders.

Whether you're a primary school headteacher, a senior leader, an experienced subject leader or brand new to the role, this book will help your school to THRIVE!
