How do we give teachers more Child-Time?

Teaching has been officially recognised by the Health and Safety Executive as high on the list of the most stressful jobs.

But despite this, the number of teachers who say they would leave the profession if they could find an alternative, suitably paid job appears to be falling – and that’s against the backdrop of Covid-19.

This is mostly down to the precious time teachers spend with the children they support – it’s why most teachers enter the profession and also what makes the job so rewarding.

In the grip of the pandemic, the usual pressures will only have increased, intensifying the impact on the physical and mental health of staff.

The tasks which add to a teacher’s workload and stress such as lesson planning, marking, pupil assessment and administration can’t be avoided altogether. But with so many responsibilities eating up teachers’ time, what can senior leaders do to free up more time for teaching?

This e-booklet is a compilation of a series of workload reducing articles, published at the end of 2020. The ideas have been compiled by our team of former primary school leaders and school improvement partners.

They have broken the content down into easy-to-follow steps so no matter how big your current to do-list is, you will be able to find strategies that you can implement quickly to start saving your teachers time.

What is included in the eBooklet?

  • Simple time saving ideas that you can action immediately on topics such as marking, curriculum planning, behaviour and data management
  • Longer term strategies for reducing workload throughout the year
  • Tips to help manage the additional workload created as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic
