How to be an Outstanding Primary Middle Leader is a compendium of research, advice, anecdotes and practical tips to help middle leaders excel in this complex and demanding role, without compromising their mental or physical health.
Written by Zoë Paramour, experienced middle leader and award-winning blogger of The Girl on the Picadilly Line, this book provides advice and practical solutions to challenges middle leaders are likely to encounter while leading a subject, phase or other whole-school responsibility, from having difficult conversations with colleagues and parents to dealing with an Ofsted inspector and writing a school improvement plan. All advice is drawn from Zoë's own experiences as a middle leader, interviews and conversations with middle and senior leaders, as well as research into leadership.
In Zoë's unique, straight-talking and witty style, this book is an accessible and enjoyable read for both new and experienced primary middle leaders looking to reflect on their practice and maximise their impact.
