The Garden at Reay Primary School

Return to Local Schools Information
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 important 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 changed or if there are any concerns to raise.

Teachers Covering

It seems that teachers are no longer expected to cover

Meeting arrangements

There is just the weekly meeting, but not always within the 60 minute limit

PPA time

PPA time is always kept to.

Lesson Observations

The school adheres to Lambeth protocol


Unfortunately, workload has not been reduced in past two years

The Reay Primary School support the principle that only qualified teachers (or teachers on an employment based route to QTS) shall teach whole classes.

Reay is a small pleasantly sited Foundation School (formerly Grant Maintained) Primary School in SW9 enjoying Beacon Status. The previous Head, Chris Toye when asked about unqualified staff teaching whole classes said 'we're not going down that route'.

It has for a while been led by Liz Tennant, who has much experience in Lambeth schools.

There is a sizeable NUT membership and an established rep

NUT recognises the committment of the school to teachers, pupils and parents. If it is your intention to apply for a permanent post there, Lambeth Teachers Association has no hesitation in supporting your decision.
