Distilled from years of NAHT (National Association of Head Teachers) experience of providing advice and guidance for its members in the UK, The Quick-Reference Handbook for School Leaders is a practical guide that provides an answer to the questions "Where do I start?" and "Where do I look for direction?" Written in an easy-to-read, bulleted format, the handbook is organised around key sections, each part includes brief overviews, checklists and suggestions for further reading. o Organisation and Management - the role of the Headteacher, negligence and liability, media relations, managing conflict and difficult people, effective meetings, inspection, resource management, records and information. o Teaching and Learning - curriculum, learning communities, special education, evaluation, staff development, unions, celebrating success. o Behaviour and Discipline - safe schools, code of conduct, exclusion, search and seizure, police protocols. o Health and Safety - child protection issues, occupational health & safety, risk assessments, emergency preparation, medical needs, health & safety resources. o Looking After Yourself - continuing professional development, and work-life balance. This handbook is an excellent resource for all current and aspiring senior school leaders.
