Due to a restructure of classes and an increase in student numbers there is a surplus of teaching hours in my subject. I am the only teacher of the subject and do not get a TLR. The solution to this has been to role in other teachers of other subjects to teach a few hours of key stage 3 per week. My head of faculty has asked me to do all of their planning, for the entire academic year with all resources as they are not subject specialists; the subject (which is practical) will also be taught in non-specialist rooms and will be written-based. I’m apprehensive to do this as I don’t have a TLR, I have requested one several times but have been told it’s not possible. Can I be forced to do the planning for the other teachers when I am not officially responsible for the subject? My contract states that I am a “teacher” responsible for my own planning, and not the subject.
