From influential Executive Headteacher Nick Hart comes
Impact, a practical framework for improving outcomes for
children in both primary and secondary classrooms, helping
them thrive and succeed.
Impact provides a strategy for thinking about, planning for and
maximising the impact of teaching in your school. All educational
establishments require leaders and teachers who can make a
difference, regardless of the community context, age range or
Ofsted grading of the school. This book condenses the
knowledge that educators need and offers practical steps to
improve academic attainment and progress, as well as pastoral
outcomes such as social and emotional development, behaviour,
attendance and wellbeing.
Impact is ideal for the aspiring middle leader striving to make a
difference in their school, the middle leader tasked with raising
standards in their subject or phase, and the senior leader working
on school improvement. Nick Hart identifies a five-part framework
for understanding what impact really looks like, helping educators
at all levels to plan for and recognise the difference they can
make in their classroom, department or school. This book is the
perfect tool to inform professional development, subject action
plans and school development plans in a very practical way.
