I have been asked - not to cover - but take an extra 10 kids from a class where the teacher is striking on Thu. Basically, his class will be slipt into 3 and shared amonst other classes (there is no upper class size limit in KS2). Although his class is not being covered as a whole group, surely the fact that they are beinf distributed amongst the rest of us is still loosely considered as covering. Afterall, covering any duties includes teaching their class (even if it is only 1/3 of them!). I have refused to do this but have been told that HR told HT that this is ok. Yeah right!!! Any facts on this so I can say to HT that I am NOT taking on these pupilsbut at the same time will not be breaking my contract?
