The Teachers’ Standards in Primary Schools
Understanding and Evidencing Effective Practice

Second Edition


May 2020 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Every primary school teacher needs to ensure that they meet the criteria set out in the Teachers’ Standards. However translating what this means in the classroom isn’t always easy, especially when you're starting out.

This book directly looks at the standards, providing guidance on how professionalism can be demonstrated and evidenced in primary schools underpinned by practical examples.

This second edition introduces two new features:
- voices of experience spotlights which explore the perspectives of teachers, parents and other professionals
- additional reading and resource suggestions that allow you to find out more about relevant topics.

Little light bulb moments and practice examples have been updated to show you how to translate theory into practice, in the classroom and wider learning environments.
