The current top 5 concerns in primary education are:

  1. Teacher workload and retention: Teachers in primary schools are facing high workload demands, leading to stress and burnout, and many are leaving the profession.
  1. Funding: Primary schools are facing funding cuts, leading to a lack of resources and staff, and impacting the quality of education for students.
  1. Curriculum and testing: Primary schools are under pressure to adhere to a highly prescribed and rigorous curriculum, with a focus on testing and assessment, which can limit creativity and innovation in the classroom.
  1. Inclusion and diversity: With increasing diversity in classrooms, primary schools are facing challenges in meeting the needs of all students, including those with special needs and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
  1. Mental health and wellbeing: Primary school students are facing increasing levels of stress and anxiety, and there is a need for better support for mental health and wellbeing in schools.
