Improving School Staffing

The Federation is continuing to campaign with members across the state for additional release time for teachers and a curriculum guarantee for every student. 

Federation Representatives are asked to coordinate the following action to secure support for the campaign in every school: 

  • Share the video link and staffing motion with all members at your school and seek support for the proposition. While it is preferred that this is achieved through a meeting of Federation members (face-to-face where appropriate or online) this can also be facilitated via email.
  • Send an email to the Federation ( with the motion attached, confirming the support of members at your school. 

For further information about holding a Federation Zoom meeting at your school, please contact your Organiser.
