    August

    Yes, I know that its a long way off, but ...

    Those of you also on "pro rata, term time" contracts, what do you do, or can recommend, for temporary gainful employment during August?

    I don't do work during the summer. I watch TV, much to the annoyance of bossman

    Re: August

    August - that's family holiday and then riot control at home (making sure my kids don't get bored enough to decide that fratricide would be a good idea!)

    And at the end of August, there's the traditional few days panic as I discover that all the school uniform that was miles too big in July is now miles too small... and then name tapes

    Re: August

    We finish up for the summer at the end of June

    I'll be working hard in school over July, got a ton of work I've planned. Then I'm off to Cyprus for a holiday at the beginning of August until the school returns.

    Oddly I always take the last two weeks off as thats when staff return to check up on their classrooms now and then and have a habit of asking for last minute super utterly urgent work to be done at short notice.
