Anyone on a 0.4 contract teaching 5 afternoons?

    Hi, I would be really grateful for any advice. I am currently on 0.4 permanent contract and have been for the last 6 years. Today my headteacher said she could only offer me 5 afternoons from September due to PPA cover only happening during the afternoons. I should have asked her if that would be more than 0.4 as it’s over 5 days. Is there a way to easily calculate fractional salaries at all? Thanks

    After seeing that my contract is 0.4231 stating that I do 14.5 working hours, I guess I need to find out what working hours actually mean. Part time teaching is becoming more and more difficult with all the cuts being made.

    If you are on STPCD look at pages 70 -72 of STPCD 2017 for deatlied explanation for how you translate the hours you work into a percentage of FTE


    If on STPCD it's obligatory to calculate it that way. But even if not use it anyway.

    Thanks for your help. My school is an academy, but I'm sure the same pay conditions apply. Will have a look tonight.

    It's quite common for 5 mornings to be 0.6 so 0.4 does sound right for 5 afternoons. Is your current contract over two complete days? I can see that 5 afternoons would be convenient for the school, but it's not ideal for you, particularly if you currently do supply on your free days - not many supply bookings are mornings only.

    Hi Lalad. Thanks for your post. Yep, I can see that 0.4 contract equals to 5 afternoons as the afternoons are shorter than the mornings. At the moment I’m teaching 1 day and 2 other afternoons, so all over 3 days. Working 5 afternoons prevents other work and doing anything else really. I asked for voluntary redundancy, but as I am still being offered the hours my request was rejected. Looks like they are trying to get rid of me and it’s time to look for a new job.
