A 10-point renewal plan

A 10-point plan for a teacher-led “education renewal” post-Covid has been put forward.

The government is being urged to take on board the strategy, which was outlined during the NASUWT’s annual conference last week.

During the four-day event, teachers reported concerns about schools that are cutting back on creative and practical subjects as part of their response to lost learning time caused by the pandemic.

Elsewhere during the event, which took place online, the union also called for the full decolonization of the national curriculum.

The 10-point plan was unveiled by Dr Patrick Roach, the NASUWT general secretary, during his address to the virtual conference.
