The Workload Challenge identified three key areas driving excess workload: dialogic marking policies; excessive data collection; and lesson planning approaches.

We have taken steps to address each of these, as well as making a commitment for stability in assessment, qualifications and curriculum reform. This gives our education reforms - that are rasing standards in our schools - time to bed in.
