This article examines the rationale and debate of the ‘Fresh Start’ schools policy introduced by the New Labour Government in 1997 as a vehicle for improvement in schools that historically had been classified as ‘failing’. Underpinning the policy is the assumption that Fresh Start can act as a catalytic agent of positive change to performance, school cultures and the school community. Dr Matthews’ involvement with the case study primary school began when she became a governor four months after the school received its new Fresh Start status in May 2000.
