Quick Reference

The senior leadership role in primary and secondary schools. Together with the governing body, the head teacher has responsibility for much of the management of the school, including, since the Education Reform Act 1988, management of the school's budget. The role of head teacher has developed over the past quarter of a century from one largely concerned with leadership and curriculum issues, to one which focuses also on management, finance, and marketing. This development has been reflected and supported by the extensive provision of professional development programmes for headship. See also headship development.
