Nicky Morgan launched the Teachers’ Workload Survey in October ’14 and promised to deliver a response in 6 weeks. Over 40,000 teachers responded to the survey, that’s a huge number of teachers who felt strongly enough about the issue to put pen to paper and speak out. I wrote my thoughts at the time in this post. I suggested nine things which I thought would relieve some of the pressure from teachers. I am pleased to see that several of my recommendations have been included.
The document arrived in my Head Teacher’s email in box yesterday morning at precisely the same time as I arrived in her office on an unrelated matter. We sat together and went through the response. Yes, we are that sad!
These are the main things which leapt out to us as we read through it.
1. Lesson planning.
2. Marking and reporting on pupils’ work.
