I work four days a week and have just been informed that I must be available for parents at the parents evening next week. This evening is on my non working day. There is also a Year 11 choices evening coming up and this is also on my non working day. I have also been told I must be present for this too. Is it my obligation to attend parents and choices evenings even on my non working days when I am not paid? Although I guess that even if it was a working day I am not paid for the evening anyway. Maybe I am moaning about nothing but it annoys me that I am having to work for free!!
