Supply alongside part time contract?

    Just curious if anyone has ever worked supply (or in any other work really!) alongside a 0.5 contract?

    I can’t afford to only work part time, but have fallen in love with the school!

    It’s a primary teaching position if that info is useful!

    Yes, definitely. Extra hours on supply at your own school can be paid at your normal pay scale. If working at a different school it might depend whether they pay through the LA or want to go through agencies. Lots of people have done both.

    Double check that bit. It's up to the school what rate they pay existing staff on supply. Our school pays only on the Mainscale, even if your contracted job is on UPS.

    I suppose that could depend on whether the supply hours are additional hours for the job you are employed or extra supply days covering other work in other classes. In the latter case, I could see the logic of sticking to a standard amount on MPS.

    Yes, I have often worked on supply while on a part time contract, both in my own school and at different schools, sometimes in a different LEA.

    I've gone part time this year (0.6) and have signed up to supply and take part in some work around that through an agency. However most of my additional income is through tutoring. In fact I'm earning more than I was full time with just one day a month supply plus my regular 6 students. Have you looked into tutoring at all? It also provides income over school holidays
