For a few weeks now, I have been working 3 days a week at a school through my supply agency, doing PPA cover in various year groups. The school has now asked the agency if I could work 5 days a week in the same class, for the next few months. I like the school and want to do this, however, I am wondering what my pay will be. I think I will be expected to do all the planning, marking and assessment and tracking that goes with a full-time teaching job. Again, I would expect this, of course, but the agency said nothing about an increase in pay. (I do not feel that the daily rate is very high as it is, but when you first go into agency work, they tell you the rate they will pay you). I enquired about this when they told me of the extra days, and at first the consultant said 'You've been doing the planning anyway, haven't you!' - but I had only planned the whole unit of one subject that I would be covering, and also one morning a week for a new teacher. I said that if I was doing everything, that that would involve a lot of my time at home. I have taught full-time on a fixed-term contract previously and I know the time and work that goes into it. The consultant agreed and said she would negotiate with the school and try and get me a little bit more. I feel unsure about the whole set up, as I have never even been given the original assignment by the agency, despite repeated requests by me, and several promises by them that it would be sent to me that same day. I also feel uneasy about the fact that they are going to negotiate with the Head. I like this school - the Head is nice, and I would like to work there. I also think they pay an enormous amount for a supply teacher. I think it isn't a rich school and I feel sorry that the agency will ask for even more. Also, maybe this would affect her plan to ask for me to do the extra days. Are there certain regulations about longer-term supply and does the agency have certain compliance criteria? Should I have a copy of the assignment - or am I worrying over nothing as regards this? Any advice or information would be most welcome.
