The May 2021 edition of SecEd offers 48 pages of in-depth, research-based and expert best practice, advice and guidance relevant to secondary schools.

We have best practice articles covering topical issues such as exam grading in 2021 and the review of sexual harassment in schools to perennial issues such as attendance, curriculum design and pedagogy. The edition also includes research summaries, case studies, news analysis, comment and the latest resources.

In addition, it features our latest eight-page Best Practice Focus special report (pages 21-28), which considers strategic school leadership, taking a practical look at how schools can put their vision, values and staff collaboration at the heart of their long-term planning. The author, school principal Ben Solly, discusses his vision, values and priorities, how to create highly effective teams, and how this all links to impact and outcomes.
