"A Practical Guide to Achieving Excellence and High Quality Leadership in Primary Physical Education is an excellent resource to support leadership. Whilst raising the profile of the role of Subject Leader, it will significantly support improvement in the standard of physical education in Primary schools. The book highlights the complexities of effective generic leadership, adding multi-disciplinary value, and sets high expectations of the knowledge, skills and strategic thinking required to fulfil the role with competence. The comprehensive range of references & learning tools contained in the package make this a one-stop resource for current Subject Leaders and teachers aspiring to the position. In addition, Headteachers would find it useful not only when considering appointments but also as an in-house training package for improvement in all subjects.
"The volume and demands of the material warrant a quality long-term CPD programme for practitioners that should be endorsed and accredited by the National College for School Leadership and/or HEI. Taking up this mantle would truly "make the difference" to Primary physical education that colleagues in the profession have been seeking for many years."
