This book is an engaging read and will particularly interest those interested in promoting change towards more innovative creative teaching within schools. The book is not a 'how to' manual but instead it indicates what is possible when willing, enthusiastic and committed staff come together to collaborate on a project which utilises their individual strengths.
While the language is free from jargon, the book is primarily aimed at teaching staff but governors may find that it contains sufficient evidence of success to enable them to ask the right sort of questions when considering curriculum development in their own schools.
