During 2009 we surveyed schools to find out how teachers were finding things, especially as the government's aim was to 'reduce workload'
Some schools are very positive, but it is imporatnt that teachers are aware from other schools how it works elsewhere.
For example, there is no need for there to be more than one sixty minutre management organised meeting per week. Schools try to suggest that this is impossible. But it is not impossible and happens in some locations
The information that follows explains this particualar school. Please contact us if things have chan ged or if there are any concerns to raise.

Lunchtime meetings

Definitely not

The previous Head Jenny Woodrow retired after thirty years service and more. She was always spoken highly of by all who had any dealings with the school. Happily, the new incumbent is intent on continuing in her vein. That can only be good news.
Although the school is 'eligible' for academy status (it provides an outstanding education according to Ofsted), the management has declared that it has no intention of applying. This means that working conditions will be according to the local authority, rather than those drawn up by a private company
