The start of a new academic year has always been one of the most exciting times for me, with the prospect of new children, new classes, often new staff, and changes and improvements to the way we work. This year, especially, we shall be looking (forward?) to many more changes in the way education is run in England: Curriculum changes, Performance Management improvements, Ofsted “upgrades”, the ever-swifter passage to Academy Conversion, Free Schools …. The list goes on!!
