Abstract For the steadfast patience of David, the unstinting encouragement of supervisors and This thesis is a report of a longitudinal study which explores the impact of the English National Curriculum (1990) on the work of teachers at Key Stage 2. It is based on teachers' experiences viewed in relation to a theoretical template of questions. The questions- refined during a process of iteration throughout the research- provided a conceptual framework which kept it focused and manageable. Data- obtained from interviews, document study and observation- derived from five cases were subjected to qualitative analysis which involved progressive reflection, the use of matrices to sort and sift and the identification of similar phrases, patterns, themes and differences, both between and across the range of participants, and across the various cases. Key patterns and differences emerged which were then cross matched with each subsequent case in a process of refocusing and refinement. Preliminary findings were discussed with recognised experts chosen for their connection with English teaching at Key Stage 2 or for their role in developing the statutory Order.
