As one of the very few lucky ones who has managed to get some longer term supply and then incredibly managed to see off the AWR and actually get paid what I am legally worth, I have just been told I am no longer needed after my KS4/5 pupils leave for study leave in May. Reason - as I dont teach any Yr 10s and the only classes I will have will be the remaining KS3 groups, it wouldnt be 'economic' to retain my services! Sounds like a kick in the teeth to me, especially after all the work Ive done (been there since Nov last year) to help turn around KS4 groups via masses of intervention work etc etc. It really is a lottery being on supply and what has happened to me is akin to saying to full time perm staff...look as you no longer have any KS4 groups, as they are now on study leave, we are reducing your salary as you now dont teach a full time table!!! Oh, heavens above give me strength!!
