Nelly, I'm interested in which union has advised 'just do PSE and CLL Language for Thinking'. I am thinking of asking my union what their/our take on EY workload is (NASUWT) Debbie, I think you're spot on with the idea of developing an alternative - even if that is to simply follow the statutory part of current curriculum and no more. When saying 'I'm not doing x,y,z' it helps to be able to say 'but I am doing this'. What I find hard is justifying why I am not following advisors advise to the letter. I'm sure many of us just get tongue tied trying to explain our principles. Maybe a brief 'reasons not to do...' would help people to feel more able/empowered to say what we feel.
