I have been reading some of William Deming's work. Deming was an American statistician, professor, author, lecturer and consultant. He is perhaps best known for the "Plan-Do-Check-Act" cycle popularly named after him which we know better as 'plan-do-review' and which lies at the heart of the Cutlers' 'Made in Sheffield' approach.

All nature is in uproar, what with rule-bending ferrets, the fact-twisting skunks and the gun-jumping foxes. It all adds up, to an explanation which makes as much sense as anything else in education or politics!! Those 'goalpost shifting badgers' are only the start of it, according to Carol Ann Duffy in her wonderful poem '22 Reasons for the Bedroom Tax'.

It's not just the DfE and OFSTED, we all want children and young people to attend great schools and benefit from being taught in a collaborative, self-improving school system that is underpinned by evidence, research and intelligence about what works and where talented teachers and teams are constantly striving to ensure that all aspects of provision and practice are good and outstanding.
