Our toolkit has been written using information sourced from the DfE, as well as drawing on the knowledge we’ve developed over the years building workload-reducing software for over 1600 schools.

In this toolkit we explore the five areas which are cited as the biggest contributors to teacher workload:

  • Behaviour 
  • Marking and Feedback
  • Data Management
  • Curriculum Planning
  • Communication

We also address how you can reduce the impact each of these has on workload and provide you with free downloadable resources that can immediately save you time.
