Part time - are mornings and afternoons treated as equivalent?

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by salix, Apr 26, 2012.

  1. What would the division be if one partner worked mornings, and the other afternoons e.g. 0.5 each, 0.6/0.4 etc? The morning sessions are nearly twice as long as the afternoons.
  2. You need to look at the hours involved. If morning and afternoon sessions were equal, it would be 0.5 each. In my school, morning is 0.55 and afternoon 0.45 of each day. Don't forget that the luch hour isn't counted in either the morning or afternoon session (so sessions are 9-12 and 1-3:30 in my school)

    If 0.5 was required by each job-share partner, one could finish early one day and the afternoon partner could start before lunch that day.
    My LA supply days are paid as 4 hrs for working a morning and 2.5hrs for working an afternoon. Those are the splits on a 6.5 hrs full Directed Time day as we get paid the full daily rate (equivalent to 6.5 hrs) for each day's booking.
    1265 DT hours annually divided by 195 max school days =6.5 hours when rounded up.
    That's 0 .615 for a morning and 0.385 for an afternoon.
    However, the contact hours are not the only time making up a contract.
    A morning worker would also be required to attend any staff briefings before classes start and could also be under contract during the morning break.
    An afternoon worker might not have a break (none in Secondary) but would be attending (pro-rata) any after school meetings.
    It would also make a difference if PPA is not possible during the sessional time in school and has to be paid as extra contract time to be taken outside school hours.
