    Hi. How many hours can a HT insist on staff attending after school activities?
    Are there guidelines / maximums ?

    Are you in a school that follows STPCD?

    Is it part of your 1265 hrs and planned?

    Best wishes

    In my experience it depends on your subject. When I taught Drama full time then there was the expectation that there would be rehearsals etc. most nights in addition to the meetings but now I'm in English there's expectation for Year 11 catch up and revision. I've never actually added my hours up (too scared to I think!?!) but I've probably always worked more than the 1265. That being said, although there's been the expectation, I've never actually been told I've got to do extra. Expectation breeds it though.

    We have a weekly staff meeting (at least 1 1/2 hours), weekly 'phase' meeting ( another hour) and are expected to hold planning meetings as well! Surely this can't be right?! I'm on long term supply so can't really rock the boat and the staff are too apathetic to call on union support. Any advice?

    It's a LA primary school ( not academy)
    I assume they follow STPCD , but not sure.
    The weekly staff meeting I understand, but it's open evenings for parents and seasonal events which are on top, which ultimately cut into prep /marking time !

    So there should be a published hours budget showing where you spend your 1265 hours.

    Here is a document written for Heads which explains about Directed Time budgets.

    Best wishes
