Reps Training – Next Tues 8:30 a.m Start Agenda, Parking/Travel & Lunch – BBQ

Agenda & Approx’ Timings


Morning session will be on Avoiding Redundancies. Whether your school is confident or not about next years finances, all schools are under severe financial stress due to Government cuts and one more unexpected change such as an unfunded 3.5% pay rise will push all schools over the edge.

Lunch will be at noon. It will be a BBQ (please see below)

There will be three short but vital training sessions in the afternoon:

1. Key reports from a number of schools, plus general Q&A
2. How To Reduce Workload In Your School
3. Recruitment & members details (Preparing for possible national strike action)

Please note that if over the weekend the STRB does recommend a 3.5% unfunded pay rise, then this agenda will change significantly.

I appreciate the irony in asking you to download聽Reps Training Workload July 2018 and read this document in preparartion for the reps training, but it is useful. Would you also watch the 3 minute video by Damion Hinds Education Secretary and others on reducing workload in schools.

Parking & Travelling To The Ealing Cricket Club


The Ealing Cricket club is on Corfton Road W5 2HS. The nearest tube is Ealing Broadway and it is a 8 minute walk from the tube station. You can park on the cricket club grounds. The gates will be open from 8:00 am. The gates are near the corner of Park View Road & Woodville Gardens, at the boundary of the cricket field away from the pavilion.

The BBQ will be a burger, sausage and a piece of chicken each. There will be extra halal chicken for practising Muslims, whom I believe are Latifa, Nusrat & Israr. If you have not been mentioned please let me know immediately. If you are veggie please also let me know immediately, as on this occasion I don’t think anyone is. Finally if you have any other dietary requirements do let me know before Monday.
