  • Identify what works and “implement”

  • Targets to monitor progress

  • Consistency

  • Best-performing systems:

    • Teacher training = craft

    • Teacher recruitment = tough

    • Teacher CPD = collaborative

    • Teachers focus on pedagogy

    • SEN is SEN, but not as we know it

  • Leadership a moral activity

  • Schools account for 20% of a child’s life-chances (versus personal and social influences)

  • Focus on learning, not teaching

  • The purpose of a caterpillar is not to be a better caterpillar

  • Need to move from schooling to education = transformation
