Alistair Smith – trainer, author and consultant, and described as the UK's leading trainer in modern learning methods – has identified and visited the top performing schools to find out what makes them successful. This timely book is aimed at decision makers in schools and gives sound, evidence-based guidance on how to embark on the learning journey and where to head once the journey has begun. For classroom practitioners there is also a great deal of practical guidance. It focuses on: core purpose; outcomes; independent learning; classroom learning; curriculum; professional development; the school as a community; and parents and carers. This is not intended to be a book of tips. Rather, it is a sound 'how to' guide based on the findings of a detailed study of the best of the best schools and how they have achieved their success.
