Strange I know but I have a questions about ownership as it has become a topic of conversation due to a colleague applying for a job that was a promotion, she informed the head who looked up the job and found that as part of the speck they had needed to have experience in some of the above. The head called them in and questioned them about the issues below stating that permission was needed from them to use resources for other means than teaching in the school. As a teacher, does any resource we make and use to teach belong to the school? Does lesson observation feedback belong to the school? Can we give a colleague a reference without permission from the head teacher? Can we mentor a colleague without permission from the head teacher? Can we observe a colleague and write them feedback without permission from the school Do we need permission from the school to attend CPD in our own time and to use resources that we use to teach for that CPD ( no student names used)? Are we as teachers owned by the school despite the fact that much work is done in our/my own time.
