Before school INSET

Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by lcb501, Nov 11, 2011.

  1. Help! My new head teacher has told us to attend departmental INSET on Friday morning before lessons, from 8-9 am. Can she do this? We've already got a meeting after school one day in the week and I don't really want to be losing any more time. Any advice?

    If it's within the 1265, then I believe she can.

    Ask for Directed Time Budget for this Academic year to be distributed to all staff.

    If it is part of Directed Time, than there is little you can do, though agree that it sucks! However, if your HOD is amenable to the idea, make it a breakfast INSET - bring in croissants, proper coffee etc and do it that way.. you may find you look forward to Friday's!
     
  6. Is this one off or regular?
    How on earth could parents with young children manage?

    If you want to complain about TES moderators removing your thread you might at least have the courtesy to start a new thread about it and not hijack someone else's .

    I think that sudden changes to hours of work can be challenged: I have a feeling there's something in general employment law that says that an established pattern of work can't be changed without consultation, and certainly schools have to consult before changing th school day. Childcare could be a very real problem for some people - I remember a colleague struggling to find a provider open early enough for her to get to school for 8.30.
    Do check out the directed time allocation, and ask your union about the hours of work issue.
