Forward Plans Submission

Discussion in 'Scotland - education news' started by Missplus, Apr 28, 2020.

    My brother works in a different authority to me and has been asked to submit full forward plan online to SMT for next week. All E's and O's and skills to be highlighted for every subject area, all groups accounted for. He works in primary and minimal uptake online from pupils. Staff stressing -surely impossible to teach all this and a huge waste of time?

    Speak to your union rep, and good luck.

    Several approaches used in my past.
    1 "Forget"
    2 Ask for an example, (then further clarification)
    3 Send it in, but only spend 5 mins doing it at stick random Es and Os at the end
    Is there not advice about the need to submit planning somewhere? ie planning is for the teacher?

    Thanks for your replies-I have sent him LA Union rep details as school rep moved on and hasn’t been replaced. Seems to have a high turnover of staff. All I could find was daily and weekly plans are for teacher and not to be handed in. I’m still looking-wondered if it can vary from authority to authority especially in these times. He’s been told they’ve to move to teaching online now. If their uptake is anything like ours then there won’t be many at the other end of the lesson.

    I wonder why, he says cynically

    Unions have published guidance on home working, read it carefully

    Why are SMT so keen on having staff submit ludicrous forward plans? Because with no face to face contact with colleagues, they are struggling to exert their "authority" at present. Everyone is effectively equal, shut away at home on their laptops, and they intensely dislike it. They can't really micro-manage you at your kitchen table.

    Missplus, a thought: is your bro working in a Scottish school?

    Yes he is. He’s not been teaching for long and in a different authority to me so all their F Plans are online whereas we use paper copies.
