    Basically I was taken on to cover, ppa time (half a day a week) and then took over in the same school to cover a long term sick leave so I am being paid per day full time. I am doing all planning etc and attending staff meetings
    etc and parents evening but just wondered if I should also be paid for inset days that I attend.

    If you're daily paid and they require you to attend INSET days, you claim as normal for those days.
    I'm an LA paid supply teacher and even on long term placements I rarely get invited to attend INSET. I knew that my last long-term school werecovered by insurance for staff replacement of the (sick) abent teacher so I asked if I could attend a particular INSET thta interested me. It turned out that I could have attended nad been paid for several previous ones but they didn't invite me as they thought I'd prefer a day off, "seeing as supplies don't want the extras that go with a permanent job!"
    I much preferred being paid for that Friday INSET than for working it as a teacher with Yr 9, set 6 in the last lesson (the class that caused the breakdown of the postholder)!

    thank you jubilee I wasn't sure because my pay is two days short so I was wondering if perhaps they weren't intending tp pay me for inset days and course days etc.
  4. If the HT/HOD actually ASKED you to attend/be present then they should have paid you for it. However, this said, I have known HTs to say a teacher would find it useful etc and then state that as it was for their development so did not pay.
