I got a call from the school I do all my supply at this morning at 7.30 to go in for the day. Having had a good week I was hoping not to be called but of course went in. We have to take work when offered for obvious reasons! The person who organises cover was having a difficult time, having called all the agencies she uses, around 12, with individual contact names for all of them, but having no luck in getting hold of another supply for the day. (she was already using a couple for the day.) No agency was able to call her back with a teacher to cover. So I am wondering, was it due to the lovely weather and supplies had made advance plans to go out for the day, or have so many supply colleagues now given up hope and gone off to other jobs?
