Written by Adam Robbins, Middle Leadership Mastery: A toolkit for subject and pastoral leaders aims to enhance middle leaders expertise so that they can make informed decisions and communicate them effectively to both staff and students.

Instead of relying on generic leadership theories, Middle Leadership Mastery gathers perspectives from psychology and cognitive science to share evidence-informed guidance on a wide range of topics from supporting staff and students in crisis and managing wellbeing, to quality-assuring teaching and curriculum design. It also sets out a holistic view of the role of middle leaders covering people management, teacher development, teaching and learning, decision making and pastoral issues.

The Five Clues is one of eight books shortlisted for the Dudley Children’s Book Award!
Here's some feedback from the judges: I thoroughly enjoyed The Five Clues. Edie is courageous and talented, and shows great resilience and determination in solving clues left by her mum following her death. It is a wonderful, clever and compelling read. It’s also the first book in the Don’t Doubt the Rainbow series, so I can’t wait for the next instalment! A very worthy title on the Dudley Children’s Book Award Shortlist.
