I have recently started at a new secondary school and have been off sick for 5 days. I have provided the same topic strand per class with at least 6 question different topics to choose from. Students would select their starting point and review answers from the textbook and write a topic focused reflection. I have limited resources when providing coverwork from home. The coverwork was not checked by HOD as they did not have the time. It comes to light a senior staff member complained about the same coverwork being set for each class even though they only covered one class today. I was told this coverwork is unacceptable. Yet I have done this for 5 days. I am off sick and to me if i am going to spend hours producing cover work I might as well return to work. All classes are of a similar ability and work is completly accessible so students can work independently. Any ideas about what I should do? I am sure that I have provided cover work beyond the time I would have been expected to. 5 days worth provided and most schools would be 3 days. HOD told me they do not have time to set it?
