Only issue Department for Education announcements during working hours
Protect the well-being and mental health of teachers and leaders of education by stopping the release of Department for Education announcements, instructions, and guidelines outside of normal working hours, especially on Friday evenings and immediately before school holidays.
Teachers and leaders are under immense pressure, and the release of important information or instructions just before evenings, weekends, and school holidays leads to significant impacts on work-life balance, negatively impacts on mental health and well-being, and leads to an unhealthy always-on culture.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
