Planning and Preparation Time (PPA)


As part of the ‘Reforming the Workforce Agreement’, all teachers must by law have 10% non-contact time each week away from their class so that they can plan and prepare their lessons and undertake assessments. During this time the classes will be taught by one or more of our highly experienced and qualified teaching assistants. We find that this approach helps to provide the children with continuity wherever possible. On rare occasions we may have to split a class.


Senior and middle leaders in school, such as the Assistant Head Teacher, SENCo and subject leaders may receive additional release time from the classroom. Careful consideration is given to the level of release time given to staff in order that an appropriate balance can be achieved.
