teachers' conditions of service

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Conditions of service for schoolteachers are set out in an annual document by the Secretary of State responsible for schools. This is known as the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document, and specifies the annual number of working hours (including teaching and other duties) for the individual teacher. In response to the rising number of administrative tasks which teachers were expected to undertake, a number of amendments to their conditions of service were introduced in 2004 in order to reallocate some non‐teaching administrative duties to clerical or support staff within the school, and to allow guaranteed preparation and planning time to primary school teachers.
