General Secretary’s Report

Issues with poor behaviour in schools are prevalent now in reports from members and in the press. Please report to us if you here of schools  buying in to an initiative called Pivotable - this is purported to be a behaviour management tool. - and on first look it’s ineffective . 

Inner London schools and colleges continue to have budgets cuts imposed on them. Another union is running an indicative ballot - pointless as this is not an industrial dispute and an indicative ballot has no teeth - it’s nothing more than a straw poll. NASUWT will continue to hold ballots on ADVERSE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES. Of course we want more money for schools - our disputes are around when our members are penalised and lack of funds is sighted as an excuse.
