After Covid-19, we need reform of our assessment and exams systems to make them fit for the future.
Together, we want to shape the future of education for the benefit of teachers, support staff, leaders and pupils.
There is a crisis in education. Funding cuts are hitting schools, workload is at a record high and the assessment and accountability system is broken, driving excessive workloads. Add to this eight years of barely rising pay and it is no wonder there is a recruitment and retention crisis.
This is why it is so vital that the NEU works with allies to articulate our alternative vision and to win on the key issues of workload, funding, assessment and pay.
This autumn term the NEU is campaigning for pay progression for all staff, implementation of national pay increase and to ensure employers are using the national pay scales.
The economic uncertainty of COVID-19 threatens to push thousands more children below the breadline. Now, more than ever the National Education Union will fight to ensure no child is left behind.
