Product description

Gathering Greatness is a collection of inspiring case studies, demonstrating best practice from 24 'outstanding' schools participating in The London Leadership Strategy's Going for Great programme. Edited by Rachel Macfarlane and Professor David Woods CBE, this book demonstrates the diversity of methodology and practice that can, and has been, used by schools across London in order to improve their teaching standards, CPD for staff, overall school performance and more, and ultimately to raise the quality of experience and attainment levels of their pupils. The stories included cover a variety of fascinating topics, from conflict resolution to closing the achievement gap; positive behaviour management to introducing a shared values system; and learning to be resilient to preparing students for the commercial world. Each case study delves into the aims, rationale, context and lessons learned of the schools involved and are enhanced with images, diagrams and graphs to illustrate successes, methodologies and results. Gathering Greatness is ideal for anyone who wants a 'dip in' resource that allows you to identify stories on subjects most pertinent and interesting to you and to gain inspiration and transferrable ideas from schools with an existing record of success.
