An organisation representing school business leaders has demanded to know why they’ve been omitted from a new workload reduction taskforce, saying finance staff will be required to make a success of cutting working hours.

Under the taskforce, announced yesterday, fourteen sector leaders will be charged with slashing five hours from the working week of teachers and school leaders.

But Stephen Morales, chief executive of the Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL), said he could “not understand” why no school business or finance leaders had been included.

“The only thing I can imagine is that this is symptomatic of a lack of joined up thinking,” he told Schools Week.
