Planning for days you do not teach

    I work four days a week and have recently been asked to plan for the Fridays that I do not work. Does anyone know if I am contractually obliged to do this. Thank you.

    That's for the teacher who works on the Friday.

    You are contractually obliged to do 80% of the work.

    Mind you, it would make sense to collaborate over this, so that you have a good follow on.

    You are hopefully assuming that it's a teacher rather than an HTLA, @Compassman , which was my first nasty thought. :)

    Best wishes

    I'd be inclined to simply leave a list of the things I want covered and leave the Friday teacher to plan and deliver it. Of course if the HT has employed a TA to 'deliver' this, then maybe the HT should do the planning?

    Next they will have you marking the work done each Friday.
    Some HT's have no idea. 4 days is 4 days. Period.

    Of course, if they wanted to pay you extra to do that planning, or give you additional non-contact time on the days you are in, that might be a different matter.
