This is the set of slides which I had intended using with the Gloucestershire Heads. As it happened there was a technical problem when we got past slide 5 and I had to freewheel as the slides, which then came up, did not relate to the lecture that I was intending to give. This was one of the most embarrassing moments of my life!

I do hope those members of the Gloucestershire Association of Primary Heads who download this will now find the original slides much more useful. I would suggest that they also look at the comments I have recently made about The Cambridge Review of Primary Education, which will be found on the website.

If people have any comments on this, I would be delighted if they sent them directly to me at
