Guidance: Communications: reducing teacher workload

Updated: Updated 'Communications workshop' file and added 'Handout: summary sheet to accompany workshop'.

School leaders and teachers have prepared these materials to help streamline and manage their communications.

You can run the workshop as a whole school activity or in teams.

You can also adapt the practical tools for use in your own school.

Ways to reduce workload in your school also includes a short section about streamlining and managing communications in your school or schools.

Our 3-stage guide to ‘Reducing workload in your school’ explains how to use the workload toolkit.

These materials are part of stage 2. Stage 1 contains tools to help you carry out a workload audit, and stage 3 contains tools to help schools evaluate the changes they’ve made after a workload review.


We would like to thank all of the staff in schools who have contributed their time to write and share the practical examples and case studies found on this page.
