More than half of all teachers are struggling with lower morale than they had two years ago.
That is according to new research commissioned by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and conducted by YouGov, which found that 59 per cent of professionals in the education sector feel less positive than they did in 2010.
The study - which involved questioning 852 teachers across the country - established that while 92 per cent enjoy the classroom tuition aspect of their job, just three per cent have very high morale.
Such a low figure was attributed mainly to factors such as the lack of clarity from the government in terms of teaching policies and the fact they have to complete unnecessary paperwork.
Christine Blower, general secretary of the NUT, commented: "The rewards of classroom teaching are immense, but increasingly, teachers will balance this against the struggle of dealing with ever-changing initiatives, an excessive workload, unfair inspection systems and worsening pay and pensions."
