I suppose it depends if schools have been overfunded for years.a better cost cutting exercise would be to get shut of ofsted and the ancillary private companies who analyse the data. So much of a teachers time is spent form filling at the expense of the childrens education.when they realised they were overloading teachers they brought in classroom assistants but that meant teachers had to manage them. Now you have many teachers off ill being paid as well as temporary staff to pay. Some teachers i have spoken with would take a pay cut if it meant they didnt have to do some of the non teaching stuff.
Might be a blessing in disguise if headteachers will be allowed to drop a lot of stuff....but i doubt it
All part of the EU strategy for 2020.
A key responsibility of institutions to ensure their academic staff are well trained and qualified as professional teacher s and not just qualified in a particular academic subject.
Academic staff are employed not just to teach, but to teach well to a high professional standard.http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/education_culture/repository/education/library/reports/modernisation_en.pdf
Therefore assuming fewer unqualified, academic staff will be needed, costs will be reduced.
Having entered as many postcodes as I can think of on Wirral, everyone of them is coming up with NO cuts. So I'm not sure of the purpose of this. Maybe someone else has found some promised cuts at their local schools.
