We are delighted to announce two exciting new titles that are available for pre-order. Both will be released in mid-October.

Taking Forward the Primary Curriculum is edited by Roy Blatchford, director of the National Education Trust.

This book has a simple intent. In September 2014, primary schools in England will be expected to adopt a new National Curriculum. There is good time to prepare, and this book shows you how.

The authors’ reflections come from varying perspectives: teachers, Headteachers, directors of foundations and leading thinkers on education, each of whom is involved in the work of the National Education Trust, an independent charitable foundation which champions best practice.

Contributors include: Kate Atkins; Roy Blatchford; Tim Coulson; Kate Dethridge; Professor Deborah Eyre; Kate Frood; Dr Neil Hawkes; Richard Howard; Peter Hyman; Pamela Matty; Chris Nourse; Katy Peters; Laurence Pitt; Will Power; Jane Ratcliffe; Dave Smith; Rob Stokoe; Kathy Wood; and Chris Yapp.

Each order for this book comes with a FREE copy of The National Curriculum in England: Key stages 1 and 2 framework document, published by the DfE in September 2013.

Lifting Our Heads is subtitled ‘The challenge facing our schools: a call to arms for the independent sector’. It is written by Alex McGrath, Head of King’s Ely Senior. We’re delighted to report it has already received an excellent response within the school community.

This book looks at the rise of the ‘educational consumer’ – parents who know what they want and expect value for their money and asks how schools continue to deliver the best education money can buy?

The author travelled the length and breadth of England to canvass the views of his colleagues. With remarkable honesty, these Headteachers share their views about the challenges facing the independent sector: from Government attacks, Press misrepresentation, demanding parents, and rising prices. What emerges is a vivid picture of the diversity and challenge of leading schools today.
