Since the start of the academic year I have been on a 0.8 contract. In terms of directed time, the only things I have missed are one CPD day (6), 17 20-minute briefings (5.6h) and a one 60 minute meeting. I have attended everything else my full time colleagues have attended, including open evenings, all parents' evenings, faculty meetings and twilight CPD. I have been to see my SLT link today along with HR manager because I wanted clarification about whether I'm doing too much in terms of directed time but I feel as though they didn't understand what I was saying. I feel as though I have done pretty much everything my colleagues have done but they assured me it balanced out because of the 20 minutes I was missing every week. Does anyone have any experience or advice? Many thanks.
