Hi all, I have worked in two schools which have both been like this and wondered if this was the norm or not as I'm feeling quite stressed at the moment. Every week in my school there seems to be at least a couple of things which we are having to do on top of the usual planning/assessing/resource preparation for our class - e.g. observations/IEP targets/levelling work for a specified subject/themed weeks which require additional work/work in relation to subject co-ordination/preparing for assemblies/Masses etc. Are all schools like this? I just feel that I'm rushing my planning and marking in order to get all the additional stuff done which doesn't feel right!
