    As in year group going away to a camp for three days during term time. As an assistant form teacher do I have to go with them or can I refuse?

    I have not been asked, this seems to be "expected" although this is the first time pupils have gone on such a thing - its a new HT with different ideas. I have never done such things. I would rather not start now.

    That's about it really.

    ( I did put this on workplace dilemmas but I need a bit of advice before Monday as I have to go into school and try and deal with it. Higher footfall here).

    I'm pretty sure you can refuse if it is something you have never agreed to and that has not been discussed with you. Though, residentials are a great way of bonding, exhausting as they are!
