Hello, I have been working on a 0.7 FTE over 3 full days a week. Our school has 6 periods a day and a two week timetable and I have 4 frees over the two weeks. For next year there is a lesson I normally teach that they are struggling to fit into the timetable. My Head has said it could go on another afternoon meaning I come in for part of a fourth day to keep my 0.7, or they can put it in on a day I’m already working and lose something else which takes me down to 0.6. I’ve had a chat with my husband to try to decide what to do (for childcare) and he is querying how they want me to do the same hours I’m already doing (3 full days) but pay me less as they’re saying it’s 0.6 when I’ve been 0.7 this year, and I can’t answer him! My understanding was I lost a free to squeeze the 0.7 into a 0.6 timetable (I think?!), but my non-teacher husband’s take on it is that I’m currently working 3 full days but next year they want me to do an extra afternoon to get the same money I’m on now, which is correct but now I don’t understand how I’ve been doing 0.7 in three days? And is it right that I’ve been doing that? Can anyone attempt to explain? Am I being really stupid here by not getting it?
