"Tackling teacher workload is crucial in tackling the teacher recruitment and retention crisis and putting the joy back into teaching. Schools have had to cope with multiple pressures which drive workload – including real-terms funding cuts and major reforms to the curriculum and accountability system. So anything which helps them to find ways of freeing up teacher time has our full support, and this suite of resources provides very useful practical help"
Geoff Barton, General Secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders
