I'm an NQT taking up a long term supply position in January for 2 terms. The job is at the school where I did my final teaching practice and may, in fact, lead to a permant position. The class teacher is leaving and because the children already know me (I've done loads of supply there since qualifying) the head wants to provide continuity and I'm being given the chance to prove myself before the permanent position is advertised. I'm employed directly by the school for supply so wondered if I should be offered some sort of contract? I know the planning and assessment will be down to me and that I'll have to attend staff meetings but what about all the other extra-curricular things like swimming galas, football matches (it's a year 5/6 class so there'll be plenty of this sort of thing)? I'm all for showing willing but would like to know my rights and I don't want to pester the head in case she thinks I'm being awkward or something.
