Managing the Primary School / Joan Dean

The usefulness of Joan Dean’s books to teachers and all involved in education is attested by their popularity. This volume, although described as a second edition of a work previously published by Routledge in 1987, is virtually a new work since it covers the changing circumstances of so many of our schools. If it was helpful then, it is doubly so now. The pressure headteachers and their senior staff are under to manage a vastly increased range of skills and tasks needs support of a high order. Local education authority staff are being pared to the bone, and much of the support that they once gave must now come from elsewhere. The practical nature of the contents of this book recognises that need, but also understands the constraints under which schools now operate. It therefore provides much in the way of advice and self-help check lists that enable schools to monitor and evaluate their work effectively without the need for complex and time-consuming processes. This is a book that should be in every staff library.
