How effective data can reduce teacher workload

Data is often cited by teachers as a headache; a view that’s backed up by our YouGov poll, which found that a third of teachers believe that tackling data issues would have the biggest impact on their workload.

This website explores how the Woodard Academies Trust and one of its schools, Sir Robert Woodard Academy in West Sussex, has successfully harnessed assessment to inform teaching practice and cut workload. We hear how a Director of School Improvement, a headteacher and a teacher are all addressing the workload problem, sharing their top tips that you can use, too.
