When Debra Massey took over as Head of Howe Dell it had a deficit budget, falling numbers on roll, poor SATs results and an ever delayed new school build. Within a year the school was oversubscribed and attendance significantly improved and the pupils say its down to the schools Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) curriculum. In Leading the Sustainable School, Debra explains how making leadership the right and responsibility of every stakeholder, taking a few risks and using common sense can improve school attainment and enjoyment. Each chapter begins with a case study illustrating a challenge or initiative, followed by action points to apply to your own setting. From developing a team of leaders, to self-evaluation tools, this book offers practical advice on raising standards in an efficient and sustainable way. The companion website for the book features training tools to use with staff and links to useful websites, making this a complete package for current or aspiring leaders.
