Next term we start teaching on the 5th of September however we are asked to come in for two days inset on the 1st and 2nd. There is a further inset on the 8th of November. Now I am on a 0.6 timetable and I am not scheduled to teach on that day and therefore I realise I am not forced to attend. How though do I approach my Head to ask to be paid for that day or receive TOIL? My second question is this: are these inset days, outside of term time, designated days? Do I have to attend, do I apply the 0.6 rule or can I ask for a pro-rata payment? Now I don't mean to be awkward however I am not FT - I do not benefit from FT pay however I have a FT workload when it comes to Parent's Evenings (usually 1 or 2 a term), writing Half-Term Reports, End of Term Reports, Tutor Reports etc., etc. BTW: I work at a grammar school that is run by an academy trust so I'm not sure if the school has to adhere to the Teachers' Pay and Conditions Doc.
