Hi all, I have a question on timetabling and I am going to email my NASUWT rep too. Background: Secondary English teacher, Surrey, just finished NQT year, however it is my 3rd year teaching (Australian). Am taking on some history classes this year. I am concerned that my timetable is too overloaded, and that my PPA has been taken away. My HOD requested to SLT that my NQT mentor and I keep a period free so we could continue my mentor meetings (I am the youngest and least experienced in the dpt). However (2 week timetable) this has been put into one of my PPAs. So 1 week I have 3 PPAs and 1 meeting period. My second week is the same, however an extra free period which is labelled 'teaching and learning' which is code for cover. Is my school trying to pull a fast one? Any help would be great, I don't really know the laws etc here.
