WordPress admin bar not showing on front-end page template?

So ive just created a page template for wordpress… however when i view the page the wordpress admin bar doesn’t display along the top… is there a tag i need to insert in the page.php file? It shows up on my custom blog theme but not the page template

The wp_head() function should be included in your header.php file.

This is a page template (not a blog theme for posts) so it isnt broken down into header.php, index.php, footer.php like my blog theme is… its just a single page.php with the loop in place of body content… Should i still include wp_head(); in the <header></header> tags of my page.php file?
