supply and observations/parent evenings

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by xmaspud, Nov 26, 2011.

  1. As a supply, your not the employee of the school, you are employed by the agency so the school doesn't have a right unless your there long term. Why would you need to know how well someone is teaching when they are leaving in a week...

    Presumably to make sure you're not invited back?

    As a supply teacher you can be asked to do a parents' evening but of course should be paid for it. Class teachers are required by their contract to carry out 1265 hours of directed time activities, which usually includes parents' evenings; you are not.
    why the school can not simply tell the parents that they will provide an opportunity for them to meet with the regular class teacher when (s)he has returned to work and settled back in is a bit of a mystery.
    Any report you give the parents will of necessity be skimpy and inadequate. The school doesn't have much regard for their children or parents if they are happy to stick anyone in front of parents to pass on a "your child is doing fine" message...
  4. Technically you are a subcontractor BUT to suggest the school has no right to observe is ludicrus. Look at your contract - if the school wasn't legally able to then supply teachers would not be able to be used...
