I was just wondering.

No, I don't believe so.

I never did. Sometimes I got a Monday off in lieu.

No! We do it out of the goodness of our hearts grin

No such thing as overtime in teaching.
Same reason we don't get overtime for clubs, revision groups etc even though they are outside our contracted hours.

Only thing I've heard people get paid extra for is if they run revision days during the holidays. And even then it depends on your school. I know lots of local schools that don't do that and just expect people to do it unpaid.

No. Sometimes get Friday/half a Friday off.

No and the stress isn't worth it.

Not once.

Never been paid extra for anything.
In fact these days, teachers can get pay docked for things like attending funerals.

Never been paid extra for anything as a teacher! No time off in liou either. Just the goodness of our hearts!

MsAwesomeDragon Sun 14-May-17 22:18:28

Nope. No extra pay, no time off in lieu, my trip is during the holidays so I lose days where I could be doing other things.

Theimpossiblegirl Sun 14-May-17 22:19:27

Nope. It's not a jolly either, it's hard work and a lot of responsibility. Neither are the parents paying for us to go.

tissuesosoft Sun 14-May-17 22:19:39

No extra and no days off in lieu here.

MaisyPops Sun 14-May-17 22:19:55

I've worked two places that did the holiday session pay. They realised that you get more from staff if you value them.

It's pennies when you consider all the other unpaid hours we do, but I always appreciated the gesture.

Equally there was talk of some schools in the region holding revision classes on good Friday and ease Monday. Education is a mad place.

*easter Monday

And seconded on trips in the holidays. Goodness of our own heart.

No ex-h went on a week long residential course and the children were so badly behaved he basically slept in a corridor for three nights to keep them in their rooms. So he worked 72 hours with no time off for no extra pay or time off in lieu. I could say many negative things about him but he's a brilliant and dedicated teacher as are pretty much all the ones I've met over the years.

No, never.

JamAndBread Sun 14-May-17 22:23:07

No and no time off and lieu.

Half of everything a teacher does is done in goodwill.

LockedOutOfMN Sun 14-May-17 22:23:31

Sorry I know you are asking an honest question op but the title of thread made me burst out laughing, literally.

Unfortunately most of the trips I've been on have cost me money (e.g. cab fare to the airport at stupid o'clock in the morning or night when there's no public transport, tips for long suffering coach drivers and restaurant staff, meals, drinks, toothpaste for all the kids who forgot theirs, sanitary towels (always so many sanitary towels and we're never allowed to add them or other toiletries to our trip budgets even though we always need to buy/provide some). Yet I still go on them despite the lack of financial reward so there must be some appeal! smile

And organise them in our own time, because we believe they have great value for the students. We don't generally get given any additional non-teaching time to plan it all - transport, staffing, negotiating costs, rooming, groupings, letters, etc...
