I am teaching in an academy. They expect lesson plans for every lesson. Luckily we share the schemes of work. I was given a particular SOW to write from scratch that included LP's for another teacher as we share the group. This particular group are KS 4 and taught over 6 lessons per week. What I would like to know is could I have said no to the planning for the senior teacher I share the class with and could I have said no to planning the SOW as I am also planning other SOW's. I was always of the belief that it was the responsibility of the HOD and more senior ranking teachers to plan in this manner. I was also of the impression that after a relentless year of planning in my NQT and PGCE I would be trusted to plan my work through making power points and other resources. Is this unusual or are all schools becoming paperwork mad?
