Is it working?
I was just wondering if its having an impact??
Personally I don't think it is!!
Not really for me. I have tried not working over lunch, but it just means taking more home. We get all the PPA we should, and although I don't my period of leadership and management time, there's nowt I can do about it since insisting on it will lead to another core subject class being taken by a non-specialist.
I HAVE insisted that I will only attend one meeting a week for an hour, and that's been better. I have also said that I will not do Saturday school this year (it's paid but at a joke rate)
HT was VERY clear that he regarded it as breaking contract, which of course it's not, but people are generally too scared to argue.
Presumably you have your contract.
Ask her/him which bit of the contract?
I do. I did actually say that I was under the impression that I don't get paid over lunch - I don't think he expected me to actually know that, since many of my colleagues don't. I suspect he'd have pointed out the "any other blah blah" if he'd been of a mind to.
