Supply rates for marking,planning etc..

Discussion in 'Supply teaching' started by amyjordon, Nov 7, 2011.

  1. Does anyone know if Supply rates should be different if you are doing some marking and/or planning for a short term supply job?

    Short answer No!
    If you're referring to being paid CS rates then (technically) you don't have to mark if it involves any kind of judgement.
  3. Sorry, my post keeps disappearing.
    No. My supply contract specifically states that I must mark every piece of work for the lessons I teach. Tonight I got home at 5. Children left at 3.20, I marked until 4.40. The beauty of supply though is that tonight I don't have to do any planning or preparation, my time is my own.
    On long term supply I did all the planning, meetings, parents evenings, even Ofsted all with no extra money. Not nice but better than no work.
  4. I asked one agency if they would pay more for long term based on this theory and they said that they often get the school wanting to pay less for long term work as its guaranteed work for a period so they should get discount. Seems that both end of the business want more money.

    My supply contract says I should attempt to mark as much work as I can however the recruitment manager I saw when registering suggested marking til 4pm them leaving a message saying I stayed and where I got up to. Afterall we aren't paid by the hour.

    I am now on a long term supply job doing afternoons but all planning has been left for me and will be given to me each week in advance. I am expected to mark where work is done in books. Mon-Wed is PPA PE (no marking), PSHE (possibly bits of marking in future but none so far). Thursday is 'Topic' and French and I did stay til 4:15pm last week marking those Y5/6 books. Fridays is Music (3 classes on a rotation) which I requested to teach and plan for as I am a specialist and it gives me the freedom to teach to my strength, its basically 1 lesson to plan for Y1/2 and the head teacher has just asked that I cover singing to a steady beat and their Xmas songs after this week's LEA review!. Again, no marking required here. I am asked to write a small evaluation and leave this on the plan for the teacher after every afternoon.

    I guess as I am not landed with heaps of marking then I am happy doing this all so far, and hoping to make a good impression to be considered being kept on in future as I quite like the school.
