Year 4
Teacher quits due to stress of job.
Now class has a teacher to do every morning, then 3 teachers across the week splitting up the afternoons between them.

So, main teacher is mornings and 2 teachers do 2 afternoons and one teacher does 1 afternoon.

What would you think?

Not ideal, obviously, but they do have the consistency of having the same person every morning, who sees the children every day and they tend to do the important stuff like literacy and numeracy early in the day, don't they?
Is it causing problems for your DC?

Not ideal, but sometimes it is the best solution the head and governors can come up with. At least the literacy and numeracy have the same consistent teacher and I think that is the priority.

Not happy at all. A job share between two teachers can be tricky enough, I can't imagine how it could be a positive thing to be split between 4!

In some ways it's not so different to having a form teacher, who the children see every day for registration and certain lessons, and then subject teachers for other parts of the day. In our junior school, each child will have several different teachers: have a form teacher, a literacy teacher, a maths teacher (three sets across two forms), then there's a teacher who specialises in RE across the whole school, and a fourth teacher who is often involved in afternoon lessons. My dc are doing fine.

I think it is probably a bit rubbish. However maybe there isnt much choice atm. If the teachers are OK then they will muddle through but it is clearly not ideal at all. Is the plan to advertise and look for replacement asap?

I work at the school....not involving my child.

Just wondered if parents might start kicking off as I know I would. Would not be happy at all esp as main teacher is a miserable 'mare! confusedconfused
