E-petition News

By Dennis Lane

In each of the last 3 years I have conducted a survey among primary schools on their use of staff during PPA time. The results have been quite consistent: 60% of pupils do not have a qualified teacher during their class teacher's PPA time. Unqualified teachers and support staff outnumber qualified teachers by about 3:1. All of this despite the fact that there are so called regulations and guidance that state that all classes must be assigned a qualified teacher to teach them. In addition to that Michael Gove has stated in Parliament that all children deserve to have every moment in class with a high quality teacher. There is an epetition in existence that asks for changes in legislation to ensure that only qualified teachers be allowed to take charge of whole classes: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/40106
