There is a senior management team (SMT) in almost every secondary school, but what do these team members actually do? This is the first book to reveal their inside story. It reports on research into six SMTs, two of which the authors observed over a full year. A new cultural and political perspective is used to explore how team members worked together and related to other staff and governors. Teamwork is shown to be a 'high gain, high strain' approach: it offers the potential for effective management, especially in coping with multiple reforms, but it is difficult to bring off. Some problems are linked with a tension between the different status of members within the school management hierarchy, and their right to make an equal contribution to the work of the team. The authors put forward a series of hypotheses about SMT effectiveness which may be used as a starting point for team-improvement efforts. This stimulating and carefully argued account is essential reading for all who are interested in the contribution of senior staff in schools; headteachers, teachers, governors, trainers, and providers of advanced courses in educational management.

'This is a most worthwhile book which contributes significantly to the general body of knowledge on managing pupils with special education needs. I found it interesting and informative. Schools cannot but benefit from the book's scope, and from insights into the many and varied aspects on SEN provision' - REACH `A particular strength of the book is the way in which individual chapters provided "self-contained" material which lends itself for use in school-based staff development activities. The book includes a lot of information that SENCOs, inclusion managers and members of school leadership teams should find useful' - SENCO Update `The strongest point about this book is that it gives a good overview of the history of special educational needs policy in this country, including recent development on inclusion' - TES Extra Special Needs 'It is a very practical account and should be a handbook for any newly appointed SENCO... [while] for experienced SENCOs and organisations where inclusion is not an issue, this book is a reminder of good practice' - Special Written from a practitioner's perspective, this book shows schools how to effectively implement and manage an inclusive school environment. Drawing from their experience in a range of schools, the authors highlight the problems encountered by professionals in both primary and secondary school settings and offer practical solutions and advice. The book offers guidance on: the role of the SENCO as a teacher and manager; government policy and legislation; self-evaluation, good practice and monitoring; how to relate SEN to school targets and development plans. Primary and secondary school teachers, headteachers, student teachers, SENCOs, LEA Advisers and professionals involved in the management of Special Educational Needs in schools will find the practical support offered in this book invaluable.
