after reading the thread by @ictsm i was wondering what time you all start?
i get paid about 8-4 (never been told my hours officially but i think it works out this way). sometimes end up making the call to down stairs to ask if the school is open late (past 6) if im busy.

I am contracted for 36 hours a week - usually in for 7am and out for about 4pm
General rule is as long as lessons are covered and we meet the 36 hours a week - we can start/finish when we want..
Though I usuall;y end up Remoting in from home - but they wont give the the OT for it

My hours are 8.45 till 5pm. I usually start between 8 and 9 and finished between 4 and 5 or have a longer dinner break.

normal hours - my start time is 8:30am Mon to Fri; end time 5pm Mon to Thu, 4:30 on Fri. Employed Term Time + 2
When there's an urgent message for the website such as snow closure, call may come in at 5:45am to do remote connection rather than pop in. I usually pop along to some evening events to take photos.
These hours are a lot less than I used to work in industry.

I work 8 til 4, I dont work overtime so if it dont get done in those hours its scheduled for another day.

We work 8am to 4pm Mon-Thu, 3:30pm finish on a Friday. 30 mins lunch break each day
My philosophy now is .... if my time is not worth paying for, I don't give it.......having said that, I try to be flexible & will occasionally start a little earlier or leave a bit later, but I try to stick rigidly to the number of hours I am contracted to do. If asked by SMT, I will stay late to support a parents evening by negotiating time off in lieu.
I don't use remote access either. I don't expect to be called at home and the school does not have my mobile number as they make no contribution towards its provision.

Officially: 8.30 -> 4.15 here (Mon-Thurs) 4.00pm on Fridays.
In reality: 8.00 -> 4.40 usually, and sometimes it's pushing 8 or later when I'm leaving. Overtime is not paid in wages, but evening work officially in time in leiu... most of the extra work though I don't keep a strict record of so I summarise it and take off as extra during school holidays - probably should start keeping a record as I'm sure I'm short changing myself!

On one job description saying 7:30 start and another saying 8 or somthing.
I work my hours as and when - try to get in for the times stated, but sometimes i do remote work and come in later the next day. It's a bit hard to do alot of server work while school is in full flow. I guess alot of us do this.

8-4 Monday toThursday and 8-3.30 Friday. I do not do extra hours as they will not pay OT and sorry but goodwill or time in lieu does not pay my rent.

Yep.. - best not to go there

i have had to stay here before i had the net at new house, i was told to fill in a form, never bothered tho. the problem is its hard to measure time when at home as im usually cooking/keeping the gf happy at the same time, and generally have a beer in hand too. i think heads think of us like teaching staff who are paid to work at home/out of school hours.

8:30am-4:30pm, 1 hour lunch; oh, and 10 weeks holiday!
I will sometimes start early (I get in a bit early as I drop Mrs Enjay off first) or work a bit late, but this flexibility is "repaid" elsewhere. It did take a bit of time to get people to stop pouncing on me during lunch breaks, but now I only get quick or urgent questions.
I certainly don't go for the number of free hours that many of you are giving - if I can't do my job in the working hours available, that isn't completely my problem.

All this talk about lunch breaks. What is this you talk of?
My contracted hours are 8-4 like most, but I guess flexibility is the key word.
