intimate and charming account of how people at Edith Neville
primary school approach issues that face urban schools everywhere.

cope with government initiatives, the needs of the pupils and the
community at large. Focusing on the progress of individual

account of major and minor successes, and failures, over a
twelve-month period in a passionate but complex educational
community. The book highlights how: the school community works to
give equal chances to all children staff strive to include children
with special needs the school community enlist the support of
parents who mistrust the system staff manage distressed and
distressing behaviour. In the background the school's managers
endeavour to meet targets and inspections, while containing teacher
stress and retaining a vision of the broader purpose of education.
