    Does anyone have any information on all this please? Do we get paid extra? Time off in lieu? I have friends family etc whose have been told their schools are open over Easter and could potentially be over the summer too and they are expected to work. I’m all for helping but are we not only paid for 195 days ? Is it a case of tough luck? I’m so worried about burnout if this is what we are all going to be expected to do . My stress levels have been through the roof the last few weeks.

    Thank you, I looked but must’ve been looking in the wrong place.

    We are currently on a rota and in once a week. On that basis I would do that over the holidays also.

    Same here, a maximum of one day a week in school at the moment, those that are self isolating or with long term conditions that mean they can't be rota'd in school are planning the home learning activities and dealing with queries etc. We expect to continue over the holidays ( staff have been asked if there are any days they can't do) No idea what will happen in the longer term!

    And here. We're only one day a fortnight now, having combined with another school, so expecting to continue through the Easter holidays. More than half expecting to be asked to cover weekends too. Who knows how long it will continue?
