There are many books about school and system readership. John Dunford's text is distinctive because of its magisterial scope. It ranges across the big policy issues of government and then tracks how these impact on schools. The result is a book of remarkable breadth and depth, a call-to-arms to hold on to our moral purpose as school leaders. It s as uplifting as it is persuasive. I can't recommend it highly enough. --Geoff Barton, head of King Edward Vi School, Bury St Edmunds
I just love this book. John Dunford weaves an informed narrative about what really matters in schools and will give any school leader both great insight and the confidence to do the very best for their pupils. Reflecting John's huge experience in schools and his interactions with governments, he gives a unique perspective on our educational system. A must-read for any school leader. --Andy Buck, founder and managing director of Leadership Matters and a former secondary head and director of the National College for School Leadership
John Dunford brings to this book his boundless passion for education, his commitment to enhancing the life chances of young people and his wealth of experience as a school leader. He fluently summarises and analyses the key developments in education policy during his professional lifetime and uses the learning from his own leadership journey to offer a range of practical advice for school leaders on a whole host of issues. The book will help school leaders to see current developments in a proper context and help them reflect on how best to respond to the challenges of their school and partnership. --Robert Hill, Visiting Professor, UCL Institute of Education and former policy adviser in No 10 Downing Street and the Department for Education
About the Author
John Dunford was general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders from 1998 to 2010. Prior to that, he was a member of the leadership team of three secondary schools in the north-east of England from 1974 to 1998, including 16 years as head of Durham Johnston Comprehensive School, an 11-18 school with 1500 pupils.
John was the government's National Pupil Premium Champion from 2013 to 2015, an independent role in which he worked with schools, trusts, teaching schools and local authorities on the effective use of the pupil premium to raise the educational achievement of disadvantaged pupils, reporting back to the Department for Education on issues raised by school leaders and teachers. In 1994 John was awarded the OBE and in 2014 he received a knighthood for services to education. He has an honorary degree from the University of Nottingham and is an honorary fellow in the School of Education at Durham University.
