    After half term we have a whole-staff meeting after school on Monday, subject development meeting on Wednesday and a parents evening on Thursday (from 3:45 to 7:30). Although it is rare to have less than 2 meetings a week, 2 + parents' evening seems a lot.
    Do all schools regularly calendar as many meetings as this?

    Ours tends to stick to one in any given week, unless exceptional circumstances demand it.
    If there is an evening meeting (parents' evening/options etc.), which are usually mid-week, there is never a staff meeting of any sort (usually held on Mondays) in the same week.

    Totally incorrect and advice likely to lead to staff being placed on disciplinary measures.
    Whilst some of the unions would like meetings to be limited to one per week, there is, in fact, no legislation to this effect.

    apologies middlemarch, if thats true then we are all guilty of it. (best not let our SLT know)
    Merely passing on the advice we were given. Apologies to anyone misinformed.

    Bless you for being so nice!
    It's good practice to only make staff do a maximum of one meeting/event per week (I say a 'maximum' because they shouldn't be made to do them every week).

    If i'm wrong I'm wrong, I think more people (especially on here) should learn to admit that sometimes.
