What we have done so far:

We should drive down unnecessary workload

  • Faculty marking policies are being reviewed in Curriculum Team Meetings.
  • Duties have been reduced for teaching staff to cut workload.
  • Staff meetings are continually reviewed and have been reduced when appropriate.
  • The number of staff emails have been reduced, for example, the Senior Leadership Group do group updates rather than separate emails.
  • Ian Rimmer as Principal regularly discusses 1265 hours with union representatives to ensure clarity and transparency.
