Developing As A Middle Leader Toolkit ...

This publication has been written to provide comprehensive guidance and support for newly appointed and recently appointed middle leaders in primary schools e.g. subject leaders, phase leaders and key stage leaders.


With a revised focus on the role of middle leadership, this wide-ranging resource can be viewed as a timely middle leadership programme in itself. It can be used as a workbook to support CPD, as well as a general source of information and resources.


There are questions throughout the book to help middle leaders develop their thinking and knowledge, as well as a wide variety of resources and pro-formas that can be used to support their work in school.
