    The college where I work surrounds a pub which has it's own brewery. The smell is lovely and the beers pretty good too! A couple of schools ago, that too surrounded a pub and I think the school may have owned it. Terrible pub - grotty and someone was shot in there while I was at work. The sixth formers liked it though!

    Wow.. Own ale as well.. yeah, now a brewery with a pub and beer garden.. oh yes..

    I do keep wondering whether I could get our WiFi to reach the pub next door to the school so I can work from there, but I think that may be frowned upon! lol..

    The school where my son goes has got a bar - pretty cool I always thought, though it is part of the theatre complex

    All schools should have a staff only area of their fields. Lunch time all the kids go and sit out on the field in the sun on a day like today was, but I'm still stuck in my office.......i know i COULD go out there, but i don't like children, and i like peace and quiet when eating lunch hence the idea

    Our schools right next to two pubs, so no need for a bar here

    Hey there's nothing wrong with the job, not a problem with supporting them, but can't stand being around them when they're out playing in active mode...they become nightmares on the field/in the corridors etc.

    Yeah, pubs in schools why not? The way the government is running this country, most of them will be on the dole and alcoholics by 20 anyway. Seeing as they're sticking a pub on the M40 service station junction 2 let's just go the whole hog and get it over and done with shall we?

    Now you can get p!$$ed as you drive on the M40

    Speaking from experience - I'd be careful what you say on a public forum - even if it seems innocent enough!
    I got stung big time for committing such a "heinous" crime

    Here, they have started making it part of the job description that staff to do supervision at break and lunchtimes. Ironically, this does not apply to teachers unless they are paid extra as senior leaders.

    That has always been the case in every school I have worked or helped in for the past 20 years - I think that is just standard, isn't it?

    Assume you mean associate staff doing supervision rather than teachers not doing it? Interesting question - Time for a poll...

    Well, when they get rid of the TAs we'll all be expected to do rubb!$h stuff like this I guess. It's not in my JD so they can go hang.
