Guidance: Reducing teacher workload: evaluating the impact

Updated: Added 'Practical tool: staff workload charter' and 'Evaluating outcomes template'.

School leaders and teachers have prepared these materials to help reduce workload.

Use the checklist to help evaluate the impact of your actions to reduce workload.

Use the ‘evaluating outcomes’ template to monitor action and impact.

Use the examples to see how other schools monitor and address workload.

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

This is stage 3. Stage 1 contains tools to help you carry out a workload audit, and stage 2 contains workshops on specific workload themes.


We’d 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.
