Just wondering if anyone has any advice/info on an issue that has arisen..... Having worked at my current school for 7 years (1 year off for maternity) staff have been told they should not be taking books home or off the premises (eg. to mark them). I have not been there when we were told this by SLT, (I work part time now) but all members of teaching staff have told me it was said this week. I have always taken books home to mark. There is so much marking to do. And now, with a toddler at home, I can't stay at school all hours to get all marking done, so it is even more important I can continue work at home in the evenings. I don't believe this issue has ever been mentioned before. SLT are well aware I take books home, I always have done! Is this a 'thing'? Can we be stopped from taking kids' books home to mark? Where do we stand on this issue? Anyone shed any light on it for me?
