The first day back in January is a teacher training day. However as I am part time, it falls on a day when I don't normally start work until after the first break. I didn't think about this until recently so am unsure what I should do and it is too late for me to ask anyone at the school as they won't be back until the training day itself! Should I just go in at my normal time and miss the first sessions or should I go in for the full day and then ask to claim for the additional hours that I attended in the morning? Given that I haven't agreed this with anyone in advance, they might tell me I should have just come in at my normal start time. But if I do not attend the full day then they might question this as well? I am quite new to the school and am on a temporary contract, I am quite isolated at the school as I am in a block on my own and I am the only one in my department, teachers don't seem to use the staff room at lunch time so I can go a day without even speaking to another teacher sometimes! So different to the schools I completed my PGCE placements at.
