Part time planning expectations

Discussion in 'Part-time and job share' started by Caro D, Sep 30, 2019.

    Parallel year group. One teacher full time, other class two teachers job sharing. Should the planning be split equally 3 ways? Or should it be halved between the two classes?
    Answers very much appreciated, thanks.

    You know the answer, don't you! The job-sharers should be doing a smaller proportion of the joint planning - half of it between them, if their contracts "add up to 1". How you decide what is fair is probably always going to be difficult, though, as some subjects are probably going to take more planning than others. With three of you hopefully there's scope to play to strengths.

    The full time teacher should do 50% of the planning really. I would suggest they always do either Eng or maths, and the two part-time teachers take turns to do the other Eng/Maths and a less planning-heavy subject.

    An alternative would be for the full time teacher to do all the English and maths, and the part timers do everything else. If I was the ft teacher in this scenario I'd go with this option.
