    Re: Working Hours

    We run a two week curriculum timetable. On week 2 the school finishes at 1:20pm on the Friday and all the kids nearly get run over by the teachers screaming out of the staff carpark....

    ......they get to finish this early because of their work/life balance being taken into account......

    .......unfortunately they seem to have overlooked the support staff in this respect and we still have to work until 4:30pm.........

    .......it's great to be truly appreciated for the work that we do.

    Re: Working Hours

    A few months ago I was starting at 7 and finishing at about 4:30 due to the amount of work I had to do. Now my resignation is in I'm keeping to my hours and break/lunch times. Sod it, told them we need someone in to give me a hand!

    Re: Working Hours

    I work 8:15 to 4:15, don't usually have a break except for half an hour at lunch time, which is usually in front of the puter looking at edugeek.

    A little while ago I did a time and motion study of what work needs to be done here. It came out at 54 hours of work per week and I am contrated for 37 with no overtime allowed.

    Since then my workload has increased further as we have federated with two other schools.

    So.... when someone asks why something has not been done yet I point themn to my workload and my daily work book which lists EVERYTHING I do. Then I ask them where they could have fitted it in that week. Usually they can't answer as they realise the amount of work I have to do.
