This ‘blurring’ becomes most obvious when considering another important feature of the process; the ‘arrangements for policy’ (Hill 1980). Hill identified the arrangements for policy development and implementation as often an explicit and integral part of policies, but also as critical in creating particular conditions that shape their development and subsequent expression. Throughout the following chapters we illustrate the way in which particular arrangements for policy established in and by the ERA were critical in shaping the development of the National Curriculum in England and Wales.

Looking at things dif ferently: new thoughts on policy In what can be regarded as ground-breaking research on education policy in the UK, Stephen Ball (1990b) and his colleagues (Bowe et al. 1992; Gerwitz, et al. 1995) have highlighted the shortcomings in the ‘managerial’ and ‘bureaucratic’ perspectives on policy that historically have dominated research concerned with social and educational administration and organisation (see also Ham and Hill 1984). Equally, we can reflect that these perspectives have not only been confined to research environments, but have also been expressed in the professional activity Policy matters 19 and structures of many organisations.

Thus in both research and in the workings of organisations, policy and practice have tended to be portrayed as quite distinct phenomena. Policy is reified as an artefact, commodity or ‘thing’, made by certain individuals usually in the upper echelons of organisations, systems or the state, to be implemented by others in levels or sites ‘below’, thereby giving rise to ‘practice’. The relationship is clearly hierarchical. In this conceptualisation policy and practice are emphasised as different and distinct, as are policy ‘making’ and ‘implementation’.
