National Strike - Thursday 10th July 

© Paul Willcocks

It seems the Government have finally realised that we are not going to give and see education in England destroyed.  We just hope Nicky Morgan understands the importance of meaningful discussions

Winning on Pay and Appraisal

Our strike in March this year forced the Government to produce guidance for head teachers about the evidence demands they place on teachers and on equalities issues in pay determination.

Schools should now be reviewing their pay and appraisal policies, using the 2014 STPCD and new DfE guidance. Go here to find these documents and NUT guidance to help you secure acceptable policies in your school.

Are you a parent wondering why teachers were striking?

To find out why teachers are striking please go to the New parents leaflet

 

Hopefully instead of having to resort to strike to be heard the new Secretary of State will attend talks and be prepared to meaningfully discuss changes to education.


Keith is seriously concerned about teacher recruitment and retention in Barnet

 

Keith Nason, Secretary of Barnet NUT is getting serious concerned about teacher recruitment and retention.  Nationally 40% of teachers have left the profession within five years.  This is caused by a mixture of excessive workload and bureaucracy (which has increased drastically under this government), undermining of the profession by politicians and very high housing costs in Barnet. 

 Remember teachers in neighbouring Brent, Camden and Haringey all pay Inner London pay although even that is not enough for London housing prices.  In Barnet, we have a drastically increasing school population but now we have schools with vacancies they cannot fill (including a number schools having to rely on interim heads and SENCos).  How can we recruit the extra teachers needed if we can't recruit enough now?
