I teach an option subject at GCSE. There is not a lesson that goes by that students are not pulled out of my class to complete work, go on trips or do enrichments for other subjects. This has been continuous since September. Out of this week and next I have a student missing 4 out of 6 of my lessons, that's just one example. My students are not going to have covered all of the content on their GCSE because of it and I've not a clue when they will complete their controlled assessments because I cannot rely on having them in class to do them. We're supposed to get notice however we often don't. In addition to this it's not recorded as such in the register. I mark them absent and then when I go back in later they're marked in as being present in my class. I don't have the permissions to alter this to a code to indicate that they were in school but not in class. They're making it look like the students have been in all my lessons. There's been mention of a possible drop down day for my classes but A) it's been going on all year, they've all missed different topics (and until recently I haven't recorded which topics each student has missed) how can I reteach the course in a day? B) that just means they're missing other subjects C) this will means pulling me out of my A Level classes and so damages them!
