Minimum service levels in education

ASCL response to the DfE's consultation on minimum service levels.
ASCL does not believe that the proposed regulations, which would introduce minimum service levels (MSLs) across education, will benefit children and young people. The imposition of work notices and minimum service levels will damage industrial relations at every level from individual schools to multi-academy trusts to local authorities, and at the national level with the English, Welsh and Scottish governments.

The best way to protect the education of children and young people in circumstances where strike action may happen is for constructive dialogue and negotiation to take place within the framework of an adequately funded education system.
