    What is the cocktail of successful schools and their leaders? They are restless. There is a paradox at their core: they are very secure in their systems, values and successes, yet simultaneously seeking to change and improve. These schools look inwards to secure wise development; they look outwards to seize innovation which they can hew to their own ends and, importantly, make a difference to the children and students they serve. That is the restless school.

  28. Taking Forward the Primary Curriculum

    Taking Forward the Primary Curriculum

    This book has a simple intent. In September 2014, primary schools in England will be expected to adopt a new National Curriculum. There is good time to prepare, and this book shows you how.

    At this point of curriculum change and evolution in England’s primary schools, a number of contributors have offered their reflections on how primary schools across the country might take forward and shape their own curriculum framework for pupils. The spirit of the book is based on considerable leadership experience in schools – ‘letting-a-thousand-flowers-bloom rather than recommending a one-size-fits-all approach’.

    The authors’ reflections come from varying perspectives: teachers, headteachers, directors of foundations and leading thinkers on education, each of whom is involved in the work of the National Education Trust (www.nationaleducationtrust.net), an independent charitable foundation which champions best practice.
