Interested to know what happens to your time after the Y11s and Y13s are on study leave or have left. Do you cover other teachers' absences, prepare SOW for next year, or free?

We have a big list of gained time tasks that are shared out in the department fairly according to how much time you have. Writing schemes of work, updating the school website, creating resources, writing assesments, tidying up the resources cupboard, that sort of thing. All stuff for the benefit of the department rather than individual stuff.

Or even writing assessments.

We do a lot of forward planning for next year i.e. SOW. We also try to plan a lot of our fieldwork at this time of year so there is less impact on our teaching groups.

Plan SOWs, get whole of Sept lessons ready to go, work experience visits, sort out storeroom which gets more messy as the year goes on, plan summer school.

Most schools also roll onto next years timetable so you don't get much time really

We are preparing to teach the reformed GCSE from September and we are revamping KS3 so all MTPs have been equally divided between the team. New timetable runs for the the last two weeks of term. We do get picked up for cover occasionally but it's fairly distributed and no more than once a fortnight.
