Do we have to show planning?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by salix, Jun 29, 2012.

  1. Although the DfE and Ofsted don't expect teachers to produce written lesson plans for every lesson, can individual schools (non academy) legally insist on them?
     
  2. Most schools do.

    An employer can instruct employees to do anything within reason that is required to carry out their jobs effectively. Many job descriptions for teachers include the words All such other tasks and duties as the Head may reasonably require.
    Did you think there would be a special law saying that you don't have to have a lesson plan?

    The key word is "reasonable". Is it reasonable for a school to request written evidence (in the form of an "official" lesson plan) for EVERY lesson? It is as least debatable.
     
  5. That's why I asked.
