Schools staff crisis looms as austerity hits teachers’ pay | Education | The Guardian
Classroom pay has fallen by more than £4,000 a year since 2010 in real terms, according to a government assessment. Damian Hinds, the education secretary, warned that only a 2% increase can be expected for the next academic year.

Ministers accused of pressure over teacher recruits - BBC News
But providers say they have come under repeated pressure to take the kinds of candidates that they had been rejecting.

They have been summoned to a string of meetings by Schools Minister Nick Gibb and his Department for Education (DfE) officials, over the past six months, where they were quizzed over which candidates were rejected and why.

DfE: More support for school leaders to tackle workload
Secretary of State for Education Damian Hinds said: "Many teachers are having to work way too many hours each week on unnecessary tasks, including excessive time spent on marking and data analysis. I want to make sure teachers are teaching, not putting data into spreadsheets. That’s why I am stopping my department asking for data other than in the school’s existing format.

"I am united with the unions and Ofsted in wanting teachers to do less admin. I have a straightforward message to head teachers who want their staff to cut right down on collecting data to be able to devote energies to teaching: I will support you. Frequent data drops and excessive monitoring of a child’s progress are not required either by Ofsted or by the DfE."


In addition to the commitments announced today, the Department will be conducting research into the burdens of reporting in schools and the use of technology to support data collection. This will be used to help promote the most effective uses of technology to make data systems work for teachers, rather than the other way around.

Ofsted has also accepted the recommendations of today’s report in full, and pledged to make sure inspections promote the proportionate use of data in schools, to help tackle the ‘audit culture’.

Spielman: Focus on substance over outcomes will help tackle workload
The chief inspector said she did not think there was an “appetite to revive the inspection model of 20 years ago”, but that the new framework, which will come into effect next September, will build on some of the “strengths” of the current system, “especially letting leaders tell their own story”.

“I also want to rebalance inspector time usage so that more time is spent on site, having those professional conversations with leaders and teachers, with less time away from schools and colleges in pre and post-inspection activity.”

Ofsted inspectors to stop using exam results as key mark of success
School inspectors are to move away from using exam results as a key criterion for success because of Ofsted’s concern that the current focus on test scores has reduced teachers to the status of “data managers”.

Amanda Spielman speech to the SCHOOLS NorthEast summit
The bottom line is that we must make sure that we, as an inspectorate, complement rather than intensify performance data, because our curriculum research and a vast amount of sector feedback have told us that a focus on performance data is coming at the expense of what is taught in schools.

A new focus on substance should change that, bringing the inspection conversation back to the substance of young people’s learning and treating teachers like the experts in their field, not just data managers. I don’t know a single teacher who went into teaching to get the perfect progress 8 score. They go into it because they love what they teach and want children to love it too. That is where the inspection conversation should start and with the new framework, we have an opportunity to do just that.

Spielman: Teachers 'reduced to data managers'
Teachers have been reduced to "data managers" instead of "experts in their field", Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman will argue today. "I don't know a single teacher who went into teaching to get the perfect Progress 8 score (a measure of pupil progress)," she will tell a schools conference in Newcastle this morning.
