Census- 'official' or 'unofficial' hours of work?!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by viscoelasticity, Mar 27, 2011.

  1. Do they want my official hours of work, plus staff meetings etc, or shall I include Everything? (which I summarised, but then deleted because I know you know what I mean!!)
    I know that it mentions 'unpaid overtime', but I had the impression that overtime is logged in other jobs, and is more 'official'.
    What has everyone else put?

    Me too, it's the truth.
  8. I choose this one too
  9. Another teacher to have filled in 49 hours or more box.
  10. i completely agree! I also put 49+, it did say include it all and we need to actually be realistic, especially to ourselves otherwise what is the point!!!
  11. And me....no option really!

  13. I also went for 49+ option... hopefully all teachers have!

    I didn't tick the 49+ box, as I only work 5 days a week and keep school work in school.

  16. I put 49+ too. All the paperwork, planning, marking, preparation, meetings etc come to at least 50 hours. Gosh we must all love our jobs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  17. I did too - in fact I thought that was too low!!!

  20. My 'official' hours are 40, anyway, but I put 49 hours+, to take into account weekend & evening work.
