I've been working 2 days per week in a primary school since September. I'd started teaching again after a few years away from it so perhaps wasn't as 'on the ball' as I should have been, and didn't realise I'm entitled to PPA until I had a conversation with someone in a similar role a few weeks ago. This other person has had a 10% PPA allowance payed throughout the year instead of allocated PPA time. Can I ask for similar and ask for it to be backdated to last September? Would the school legally be able to refuse?
Thanks for the replies. I'm hoping that they will agree to backdate it. Can't work out at the moment if it's a genuine oversight on their part or whether they just thought I wouldn't notice! My post was only for 1 year so need to get the ball rolling before I leave. Wish me luck!
