Please, please, please can you or someone else advise me? I started on long term supply after the October half term last year. I am on supply through an agency and at the time of accepting the assignment, the school said that they would take me through 2 terms of my induction. My school signed me off on my first term of induction and sent off the paper work but the LA have come back this week saying they will not sign me off as apparently they hadn't approved having me as an NQT in the first place. I'll add at this point that I raised the issue of being registered with the LA about 4 months ago and was told, "don't worry its all in hand". I'm about 3 weeks short of completing my next 12 week slot and its only this week that school have started to mention the possibility of none of my time counting. It would seem that I have wasted this time as none of it can be signed off. The school's head has said that she will write a strongly worded letter to the LA saying how unfair she feels it is that the LA won't sign me off but I actually think its the school's fault for not clearing my status with them in the first place. Has anyone else had a similar experience and what was the outcome? I feel totally 'sold up the river' with this. I have undertaken after school clubs, supported the school at school social events and not to mention the obligatory working ridiculous hours and having no life since starting, all for being in exactly the same place as 6 months ago.
