Welcome to HeadteacherChat. A Professional Network for School Leaders. 👋

We are talking to Margaret tonight about Giving Teacher's Time Back.

Prioritise. ....Everyone is so busy, but not everything is of value, e.g. a writing a daily lesson plan, triple mounting displays. Does this take you away from what is important? Only focus on what is important.

Technology is important. Use it when and where you can but only if it is of benefit.

Online assessments can be very helpful at reducing teacher workload and marking.

Adapt pre-written resources to save you time.

Tweek pre-written plans so that your class can access them, rather than write them from scratch.

Collaborate - work together.

Use a planner to keep you organised.

Tonight's quote: 'The single most important aspect of your job is to make it easy as possible for teachers to teach. All else flows from that.'@DavidDidau
