An action plan for schools was produced in April 2015 which details how to collectivise members in your school to work together to achieve changes. A copy of this document can be obtained from the Sheffield NUT office. Please email

Sheffield NUT have a produced a work-life balance questionnaire here. If you would like to complete one of these for your school please contact our office and we can arrange a meeting with members and bring copies of the survey.

An on-line survey is also available. Please contact Toby on 0752 393 6967 for more information.
