Taking the PPA*ss

    As a 0.6 teacher (& assessment coordinator) in a small infant school I get an hour of PPA a week.
    I have no issue with this.
    But a colleague, who is also 0.6, gets a whole afternoon every week. She is PE coordinator (although the pupils are never get taken to any of the SSP festivals or anything during this extra PPA time). I know this cannot be funded from the government PE money so school are providing this time.
    Does anyone else's school have extra PE time for any reason or is there a bit of favouritism going on?!?

    Only an hour on 0.6 sounds a bit too little. Typically 0.6 would equate to about 15 timetable hours, so you ought to be getting 1.5 hours.
    "It's not fair" isn't really good grounds for anything, and of course it's possible there's a good reason of which you are unaware - a particular task this colleague has been asked to do, or an adjustment for disability reasons which might be confidential.
    However it might be well worth you asking about your own PPA entitlement; you are entitled to have an issue with this, and the net result might in fact be an evening up of the PPA allocation.
