  1. I am covering normal lessons too but it is mostly form times. So does that mean I should just put up with it? Even if they are already adding up to twice the yearly hours expected by a union?
  2. When they first asked you in a non-emergency situation
  3. I don't think you can complain too much about covering form times when most full time teachers have a form to register every day.
  4. The OP can complain about any request to cover a class not included in their normal timetable
  5. In a sense, I agree. Except that the only reason I don't have a form of my own is because I joined the school mid year so not really my fault! I'd rather have my own form than flit between everyone else's! Also, the AMOUNT I am covering form times is beyond ridiculous TBH.

    I complained about 3 in 5 weeks, and was told that we had no option but to use teachers on prep lessons!

    i was a bit hacked off when i voluntarily covered an absent dept member's lessons for a month, bringing my timetable up to 1.4, then was put on "normal" amounts of cover afterwards -by easter i'd done 38 hours of cover, when the average or my school was 6 and a bit.
