    Who works term time only? How many full time?

    Just wondering what percentage of IT staff work all year to term time... Does it depend on the area, school or whether it's secondary or primary? Any stories from the quiet time?

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    Started as Term-Time + 2 weeks as the ICT Technician in September 2005.

    The NM moved to another school in the area in July 2006.

    I was promoted to NM and consequently became Full Time since July 2006.

    90% of everything gets done out of term.

    37 hours, 52 weeks for me. secondary school in dorset.

    Did a suite of 30 machines in a half term, including moving the old 30 around the school, removing the old old machines that the old ones were replacing, some cabling in another room and disposal of the packaging.

    Finished around 6pm on the friday!

    *edit*
    This was on my own

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    Full time, school closes completely for around two weeks at christmas, but some of this is meant to be 'working from home' time.
    I'm probably one of the few buggers that ends up actually doing that, but mostly it's just remote server tidying. Likewise, most of the work gets done in the summer, with us usually rolling out 200-300 computers (A mixture of new placements and replacements for machines at the end of their 5 year life span) in July/August. Although we've recently started getting a jump start on it, abducting a couple of classrooms as workspace during exam leave, and trying to get all the ghost imaging done on the machines before they go out... then just plugging them in and running through setup in the room.

    But I digress. Full time, and then some.

    Primary schools - term time only normally.

    But go in the holidays on overtime if needed (overtime concentrates hearts and minds of all concerned )

    regards

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    I am term time plus inset days plus an extra two weeks.

    Pay is obviously pro-rata.

    Personally I like the holidays off.

    I'm in a funny situation at the moment I work for 2 schools:

    Junior School: term time plus 10 days

    Secondary School: full time (but as I'm only 2 days a week it leaves me with a lot of scope for overtime during the holidays if its needed)

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    term time for me plus development days - this is in a primary school and i only theoretically do 35 hours a week although its more like 38 some weeks. i'm still trying to drum into the staff that i am not paid to work through my lunch hour even though i am onsite still.

    Term time + 15 days (although for the 2 years I've been here, 10 of those are spent in South Africa setting up links with partner schools each year)

    Re: Who works term time only? How many full time?

    I started doing term time only but went full time about two years ago. I managed to persuade the management that I needed the time to get stuff done.

    Saves being bored out of my skull for 13 weeks a year and it means a few grand more in the old pay packet too
