i work in a faith school and so we work untill half 4 in the juniors to make up for the extra faith lessons. for no extra pay. this means we work over the 1265 directed hours per year. i have rung my union to get advice on this,am waiting for a call back but wondered if anyone here has been through this and what the outcome was? i know of one girl whose union brought this up with the school and was then allowed an afternoon off to make up for this fact, but then she is being put back in the infants in septemeber, who finish at 3:30 so she wont have to be given an afternoon off.also she was told that shewas being iven an afternoon off to compensate for the change in key stage and extra workload, nothing was mentioned of the directed hours to her.
