Classroom Secrets tackle work life balance with free EYFS resources

 

North of England based educational resource provider, Classroom Secrets, are addressing the issue of life/work balance with early years and foundation stage teachers by providing a set of free resources to aid in the classroom.

Established in 2013, Classroom Secrets provide diversified learning resources to over 115,000 teachers across the country. Currently, their range of resources covers Key Stages 1 and 2, with their brand new Mathematics EYFS activities the first in a range that is set to expand their usefulness to an even greater number of educators.

The primary audience for the resources are teachers currently working with nursery or reception aged children, and Year 1 teachers covering the Early Learning Goals. The resources may also be of interest to senior leaders within infant or primary schools who are considering a school-wide subscription.

The growing range of resources form part of the Classroom Secrets #LifeWorkBalance campaign, which invites teachers to give feedback on their methods of teaching, as well as the amount of work they are required to do, to assess how schools can best achieve a proper balance for their staff.

Claire Riley, Managing Director of Classroom Secrets, commented “We’ve heard the feedback from our KS1 and KS2 teachers and it’s always about the time that they’ve saved being able to access affordable, diversified resources. Cumulatively, our resources save millions of hours of teachers’ time every year and we want to make that benefit available to as many people as possible.”

“Our three main promises to customers are choice, quality, and balance. We want teachers to be able to choose the materials best for their students, be comfortable in the in-depth quality of those materials and, by doing this, give teachers the much-needed life/work balance they deserve. There are tens of thousands of EYFS teachers in the country, and with growing class sizes and decreasing teacher numbers in the UK, it’s essential that we help them get the tools they need to make their lives easier.”

Initially, ten resources will be launched with a view to introducing them as a permanent part of the company’s offer, which already includes over 3,000 resources for KS1 and KS2 classes.
