The Role of Flexible Working Ambassador School
Our mission is to champion flexible working. We will provide practical support to participant schools to enable implementation and maintenance of good practice and to increase understanding of flexible working arrangements to promote a lasting culture of change.
We know that flexible working practices can help recruit, retain and motivate teachers, improve teacher wellbeing, promote equality of opportunity and diversity (in teaching) and play a central role in helping schools deploy staff effectively and efficiently. And yet, we know there is unmet demand for flexible working in schools, and that there are practical challenges associated with its implementation.
Charles Dickens Primary School is committed to flexible working and its benefits are deeply embedded.
Charles Dickens Primary School has already worked with many schools, such as the Teaching School champions and has raised the profile of flexible working through its Woman’s Leadership Network and BAME teaching and leadership programme.
