Details

School leaders and teachers have prepared these materials to help staff reduce workload related to data management.

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

Read the case studies and examples to find out how other schools have been reducing data burdens on staff.

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 impact of changes they’ve made after a workload review.
