My school is burgundy book, freaking out in light of the most recent announcements...
There are several other threads on this already...
NEU guidance says yes you will be paid if you are on a permanent contract as a teacher
Why not check the union web sites the answer is there. Rott says this above
Try being in a fee paying school with parents struggling to just meet the fees as it is...!
I really cannot think of a suitable response to this. Please someone help me out
All I can think is ***
Is this a troll?
We are an Independent special school so not even sure we are closing as most of our kids are on ECHP , we have an emergency staff meeting tomorrow I am hoping it will be the HT reassuring everyone they will be paid regardless of what kind of contract they are on.
Words fail me.
I thought of several...no point typing them, TES would star them all out.
It's Greentrees guys n' gals. It's a troll account.
A moment ago he was claiming that his school wasn't shutting. Despite the closure being via a statutory instrument (i.e legally binding).
Greentrees is a troll
S/he is an imaginary headteacher of an imaginary school.
Their last paragraph about freeing up funds is a clear ‘wind up’
I find this offensive at such a difficult time for people whose livelihood is threatened, health possibly compromised and at a time when we should be supporting each other
Once again you prove what a vile person you are.
@GreenTrees123 . As we explain to children. The problem with lying is that it is difficult to keep your lies consistent
Btw trolling and ‘flaming’ is against T&C s
But this offensiveness exceeds your usual unpleasantness.
How about shut up and go away or your own version if you prefer
Muttley is a sniggering and rather sad attention seeker who appears desperate for some form of validation. On the plus side I do get some pleasure from being rude about a desperate wanna be HT

Yes. A regular spoof poster who pretends to be head of a non-existent free school. He only does it to wind people up. Ignore him.
What's a spoof poster
Take your pick of the following:
One pretending to be something they’re not?
One who has such a limited life their only entertainment is to wind others up?
One who in RL can find no one to talk to / listen to them so needs to provoke ‘conversation’ by extreme or inflammatory remarks?
or in this case
A seriously nasty person
One so lacking a brain cell they think preying on people who are in danger of compromised earnings , health etc. is amusing
I think we should just ignore green trees and not get side tracked by his/her posts.
@GirlGremlin Yes, you will still be paid.
if you are unwell, then you will be paid sick pay.
Otherwise, you are technically still working, even if at home, and will be paid in exactly the same way as normal.
