Around 20% of Edapt subscribers are teaching and working in independent schools. We have supported our independent school subscribers by providing support during allegations, sending accompaniment to grievance and disciplinary hearings to answering questions about pay and working conditions, maternity leave and jury service.
It’s the time of year when many teachers and school staff will be deciding their options when subscribing to a teaching union or edu-legal support such as Edapt (or in some cases both!).
After a summer break which feels like it has gone much too quickly, you come to the realisation that you will have to eventually return to school. For the majority of teachers the first day back will be INSET where you can mentally prepare yourself to transition into ‘school mode.’
Over the last academic year, we have supported more subscribers than ever before achieving a 99% casework satisfaction rating on the quality of support we provide. We always try and achieve the best outcomes for our subscribers while maintaining a high-quality, accessible and personalised service.
How easy is it for teachers and school leaders to game the KS2 SATs? According to the Standards and Testing Agency (STA), last year 2,688 test results were annulled, the year before that the figure was 723.
It can always be useful to use the first few lessons after the holidays to reassert rules and routines and to introduce new ones to keep pupils on their toes. This is especially true if you are working in a school with challenging behaviour and inconsistent application of the rules from class to class.
