Professional growth

We are committed to ensuring that staff workload is manageable and fair. As such:

  • We ensure we stay under the 1265 hours for teaching. For us reaching this is not something we need to ‘aspire towards’.
  • Ensuring FT and PT staff have adequate PPA time, which exceeds the 10% recommendation.
  • Cover is used ‘rarely’ and is always carefully considered so that it is sparingly and proportionately used.
  • The careful and sensible planning of Middle Leaders’ directed time, supported by additional departmental and pastoral roles.
  • High-quality resources are in place for staff to use; they do not have to create their own.
  • Clear and effective policies and systems to make day-to-day life easier.
  • A collegiate approach to planning and shared SoW to reduce planning time.
