Misfit, by Kimberly Redway (£6.99)
A warm-hearted take on black identity in modern Britain by debut author, Kimberly Redway.
George Turner is a misfit. He doesn't fit in with his family and his older brothers are trying to make sure that he's an outsider at his new school. He'll never be cool and he'll never get the girl... or will he?
Bloomsbury High Low books encourage and support reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers, those with dyslexia, or those with English as an additional language. Printed on tinted paper and with a dyslexia friendly font and illustrations, Misfit is aimed at readers aged 11+ and has a manageable length (80 pages) and reading age (9+). Produced in association with reading experts at Catch Up, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties. Book band: Grey
Bloomsbury CPD Library: Supporting Children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, by Cherryl Drabble (£22.99)
According to the most recent SEND Code of Practice, every teacher is a teacher of children with special educational needs and disabilities, and yet teachers often receive little or no training in this area. Despite their best intentions they are therefore often ill-equipped to rise to the challenge of helping their students achieve the best possible educational outcomes.
This comprehensive resource will equip primary and secondary teachers and SENDCos with the training and skills they need to fully support children with SEND in mainstream classrooms.
Cherryl Drabble draws on her vast experience as a CPD leader, NQT mentor and her many years of working with SEND to share guidance, practical activities and strategies for evaluating and strengthening your practice and that of your colleagues. The book provides a set of ready-to-use training plans, accompanied by PowerPoint slides available to download online for free, so you can train your colleagues in this essential area and ensure the best support possible for students with SEND across your school. In total, the book offers over 50 hours of CPD, equating to a cost of less than 50p per hour of training!
Bloomsbury CPD Library: Senior Leadership, by Jon Tait (£22.99)
Being an outstanding classroom teacher does not always translate into being an outstanding senior leader – the skill set can be very different. A senior leader's focus must shift from delivering high-quality classroom teaching, towards leading staff rather than children. Experienced Deputy Headteacher, Jon Tait, sets out to help with this transition by teaching aspiring senior leaders how to lead staff and gain vital knowledge and experience in their new role.
This easy-to-follow title in the Bloomsbury CPD Library specifically focuses on the next stage in a teacher's career: senior leadership. It includes a full set of helpful, ready-to-use training plans for 20 hours of CPD sessions with your school and senior leadership team. All hand-outs and presentations are provided in the book or available as a free download from the companion website.
Narrowing the Attainment Gap: A handbook for schools, by Daniel Sobel (£26.98)
The attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers is one of the most insidious social injustices in the developed world. It is a significant factor in the growing inequality of our societies and persists across time and nations. For this reason, narrowing the gap is a top priority for governments and policymakers, and an issue that all schools must tackle.
Written by a leading expert in the field of inclusion, Narrowing the Attainment Gap is designed to support school leaders in understanding and reducing the attainment gap in the context of their setting. Drawing on research and his own extensive experience in leading a team that has worked with over 1,000 schools, Daniel Sobel examines the real issues behind the attainment gap and the barriers schools face when trying to narrow it.
The book provides a unique approach with hands-on, practical guidance to enable every school leader to develop their own bespoke solutions to meet the needs of their community. Case studies and examples illustrate how these interventions can be put into practice and the impact they can have, while template resources help schools demonstrate to stakeholders the change they are driving at an individual, cohort and whole-school level.
