In our follow up survey, we were keen to explore the extra hours which teachers work. Our first survey revealed that, on average, teachers arrive at school 68 minutes before the start of the teaching day (click here to read the previous survey results) so, in a bid to examine the extra hours which teacher work, we asked questions about working at lunch-time, after-school, in the evening and, the hours worked at the weekend.
This latest survey was completed by 615 respondents, with responses categorised into the following: Early Years Teachers – teach under 5 year olds; Primary Teachers – teach 5-11 year olds; Secondary Teachers – teach 11-16 year olds; Further and Higher Education – teach students aged 16+.

How do the numbers resonate with you and your setting? The figures shown are average time; do you and/or your colleagues work more or less hours than the averages? Do the figures shown resonate with teachers outside the UK?
