If you can keep your Head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust your Head when all men doubt them,

But make allowance for their doubting you;

If you support and don’t expect supporting,

Get moaned about, and not resort to moans,

If unde...

I had an article published recently where the editor had described me as a “champion of collaboration”. I was completely delighted because:

a) it proved that at least one person had actually read some of the stuff I write where I bang on about schools working together f...
