We often say that IMPACT is more like a pint of beer than a plate of chips! It has to take the shape of the context into which it fits. This means that what IMPACT looks like in one school will not be the same as in another school. However, since the Education Reform Act, IMPACT like every other intiative has had to fit the context of the National Curriculum. When explaining the IMPACT process, it helps if we can share the same picture of the National Curriculum framework.
