Like the first edition, this book deals with all aspects of the headteacher's role, including a discussion of the changing relationships with parents and governors, and an examination of the headteacher's involvement with marketing the school and controlling its finances. Each chapter looks at a particular group of skills and tasks which are a part of the management role. Joan Dean takes into account the implications of the Education Reform Act and the National Curriculum and includes accounts of recent research, concentrating in particular on studies of effective schools. This book will be invaluable to all headteachers as well as other senior staff, advisors and consultants working in primary schools.

The collection will be important not only for information technology and education management experts and researchers, but also for all teachers and administrators interested in this growing field.

'This is a most worthwhile book which contributes significantly to the general body of knowledge on managing pupils with special education needs. I found it interesting and informative. Schools cannot but benefit from the book's scope, and from insights into the many and varied aspects on SEN provision' - REACH `A particular strength of the book is the way in which individual chapters provided "self-contained" material which lends itself for use in school-based staff development activities. The book includes a lot of information that SENCOs, inclusion managers and members of school leadership teams should find useful' - SENCO Update `The strongest point about this book is that it gives a good overview of the history of special educational needs policy in this country, including recent development on inclusion' - TES Extra Special Needs 'It is a very practical account and should be a handbook for any newly appointed SENCO... [while] for experienced SENCOs and organisations where inclusion is not an issue, this book is a reminder of good practice' - Special Written from a practitioner's perspective, this book shows schools how to effectively implement and manage an inclusive school environment. Drawing from their experience in a range of schools, the authors highlight the problems encountered by professionals in both primary and secondary school settings and offer practical solutions and advice. The book offers guidance on: the role of the SENCO as a teacher and manager; government policy and legislation; self-evaluation, good practice and monitoring; how to relate SEN to school targets and development plans. Primary and secondary school teachers, headteachers, student teachers, SENCOs, LEA Advisers and professionals involved in the management of Special Educational Needs in schools will find the practical support offered in this book invaluable.

The educational environment of the 1990's is characterized by increasing independence for schools in a more competitive climate. This book is intended to be of direct practical help to those involved in ensuring the long-term wellbeing of schools for the benefit of the pupils they educate. Its aim is to provide both an overview of the issues relating to external relations in schools and an insight into the organizational and planning systems that can be applied to dealing with them. In particular it focuses on the overall field of external relations and on its individual facets, ranging from the management of links with the LEA, liaison with parents and issues in primary/secondary school links to school identity and marketing. The book is divided into four integrated parts which examine approaches to the management of external relations, links with the educational environment, links with the community, and external relations. Managing External Relations in Schools places the new challenges arising from the Education Reform Act and LMS into a broad context, which is much wider than the common concept of public relations and marketing. This will enable teachers and school managers to consider more systematically the management needs of the institution's external links. Each of the contributors is an expert in his or own field and has written from the perspective of real challenges and issues facing schools. Ideas on enhancing efficiency and effectiveness in all spheres of external relations underpin the themes in the book.

Originally published in 1988. The qualities that identify a good school are high teaching standards and teacher morale, good levels of behaviour, successful pupil performance and a well-balanced provision of extra-curricular activities. Such schools are described as ‘well-run’ but the correlation between effectiveness and an explicit management strategy is not yet established. This book seeks to examine the role of management in the primary school and to identify those areas in which effective management practice can make a valuable contribution to school life for the benefit of both staff and pupils. It argues that although useful insights can be gained into school organisation from the scientific management perspective, the human relation approach to management has more to offer to those working in the primary sector. The focus is therefore on personal relationships. The importance of a clear sense of purpose is emphasised throughout, especially in view of the challenges which now face our primary schools.
