On Friday, 3 December our school group got together for a union meeting about Value Education, Value Educators.

It was a great opportunity to go through the booklet together and discuss what issues we were facing. It was clear that recent changes to our planning, preparation and assessment (PPA) were causing the most concern amongst members and we decided to do a piece of work on this together.

We collated the opinions and concerns of members and communicated these to the senior leadership team (SLT) in charge. The key issues were:

  • PPA given was cutting into lunch and break times.
  • Some meetings were being scheduled without teachers’ consent.

This was a simple piece of work that has now resulted in all members having a better managed PPA time that suits them and a renewed understanding.
