Two things really. I am hot, bothered, fed up and I could cry. 1. The school is closed. I was told to put work on the google classroom and run remote learning and also " Live learning" ( although I am not sure how to do that as no one explained it to me). I have been waiting for students to put their work up for me. None of them have. I have contacted them but got no replies. What else can I do? I knock at their e mail doors but no one answers! Most of my classes are A level anyway and I had managed to complete the courses because I had the foresight to see this police state lockdown coming back in January. Since exams are now " cancelled" ( except it seems they are not but the students do not seem to know it) . I am being asked to find assessed work to use for predicted grades ( e mail from school to me). I have some work but my exam was 100% exam based in my subject . The students I think have just stopped bothering and revising despite my telling them otherwise. 2. I also supervise EPQ. As centre co ordinator I now have 26 EPQ projects to sort out ( as other teachers have dropped their metoring). Again I am still trying to get completed projects from them but I have no replies. I have work in a vairious nuber of states of completing but only two actually finished. I just do not know what to do. How do I get it through to the students I still need their completed projects? I too thought we were going on predicted grades..... what are the exam boards and governemtn playing at here? Announcing that exams are cancelled was not the way to get exam clases to contin ue to work. Am I the only one struggling with this problem? Has someone got a solution? For em, school holidays start at the end of this week anyway but it looks like I am expected to work all through without a break. After that the school ( an independent) has told me I will not be paid. . I can understand that but should I have to work for no pay? At this current rate I will be filling in paper work and making assessments for an exam board after I have been effecively laid off work. Why are we not using just predicted grades now?
