I've recently started work as a supply teacher through an LEA. However I haven't managed to get information from either the Head, or the LEA, about supply teacher pay, hours and expectations. The Head has asked me to mark all the work I teach which of course means I stay beyond the end of the school day. Yet another person from the school office has said to only put down the hours taught in front of the class in the classroom as 'that's what supply teachers do'. Somebody from the LEA says it's up to the Headteacher to decide hours and expectations. I understand supply pay is on a daily or half day basis, not hourly. Therefore is preparation time (coming in early) and marking time considered at all? What if I work until 2pm instead of to the usual 3.25? (I asked the school secretary who didn't know). I want to ensure I will paid correctly for the work I do but I don't know who to get this information from! Any help and advice appreciated.
