A Manifesto for Excellence in Primary Schools is a book for both teachers and leaders, designed to provide clarity about why and how to achieve a climate for excellence in primary schools all based on Rob Carpenter 's personal experience of transforming an inadequate school to outstanding in just under two years. Rob firmly believes that the quality of teaching and leadership holds the key to raising standards in our schools today, and this book suggests new ways for ensuring all children succeed. It includes how to develop inclusive learning communities which ensure learning journeys are connected to a moral purpose, positive learning habits and the need to ensure young people can make sense of the world around them.
Framed around the context of ever increasing expectations for pupils and the growing focus on learning mastery, A Manifesto for Excellence in Primary Schools contains a balance of both practical advice and multiple examples, resources and ideas for teachers and leaders to plan and deliver high quality learning experiences. At its heart, this book is all about helping teachers and leaders to become architects for learning; designing classrooms, curricula and whole-school practices that are inclusive, engaging and above all excellent.
