Leading Curriculum Innovation in Primary Schools
Brundrett, Mark; Duncan, Diane
Management in Education, v25 n3 p119-124 Jul 2011
This article reports on a study of 40 primary school leaders from ten very successful primary schools who were interviewed in order to find out the skills, processes and practices that are required for the leadership of successful curriculum innovation in primary schools. Findings suggest that school leaders need to create an "ethos for change" if successful innovation is to take place. A new four-stage model of curriculum innovation is offered. (Contains 1 figure.)
