This thesis contains an account of part of a major curriculum reappraisal programme which began in 1976 and is still continuing in 1984. The programme, which was initiated by HMI, involved five local education authorities in England, and drew together HMI, LEA advisers and administrators and staff in many schools. In the processes of reappraisal these people found themselves in unfamiliar roles and engaged in tasks on which they would not normally have been employed. These roles and tasks have been examined from the viewpoints of the various groups involved in the process. The notion that the whole programme may be treated as an intervention, both on the part of HMI and also on the part of the LEA advisers, has been used to develop a systems model for the process. The factors likely to affect such a system have been analysed and examined, again from the viewpoints of the various groups involved and from these have been generated a series of conclusions and some recommendations which it is hoped might be of use for those who may themselves one day become involved in some way in the process of whole-school curriculum reappraisal.
