Privacy statement - Terms and conditions

1265 & PPA here to stay

14 February 2014

Yesterday the School Teachers Review Body issued their 22nd report covering a number of areas relating to teachers’ terms and conditions. It has been widely expected that a number of limits in the current national terms would be removed, most significantly the restriction on teachers’ working hours to 1265 in an academic year. In a move against Mr Gove’s preferred approach, the report does not take up this suggestion. Time for Planning Preparation and Assessment (PPA) and three years safeguarding of pay on a restructure have also been retained.

The tone of the report suggests that concerns about the pace of change have been listened to and that the further changes requested by the DfE would be a step too far. The DfE’s desire to lengthen the school day has been significantly damaged by this news; the teaching unions are understandably delighted.
