DON'T PANIC

5th September

It seems appropriate to start this with the words of Douglas Adams. A few days ago, a government adviser told us that we were no more likely to contract Covid 19 than we are to be involved in a road accident. So that's alright then. Actually, seeing as it came from a government adviser perhaps they're really the words of Corporal Jones from Dad's Army, shouting loudly while first running in one direction and then back in the opposite direction.

I suppose we should be thankful that the Tories haven't decided to reform the traffic laws. Are we driving on the left or the right this week? Does a red light still mean stop? Who cares if they're doing something different in Scotland? Of course, a big difference is that if you have a minor bump in your car your parents aren't likely to end up in intensive care.

Back to School

5th September

At the start of the academic year, every teacher should receive the following documents:

• Your salary statement - this should state where you are on the main salary scale, where you are on UPS, the value of any TLRs you may hold and your overall salary.

• A breakdown of your 1265 (directed time) hours. If you are working part time, you should receive a personal pro-rata breakdown.

• The school calendar - your PPA should be clearly identified (not less than 10% of your timetabled teaching time). If your PPA is in the afternoon, check that it is an accurate reflection of PPA in your school (some schools swap AM and PM PPA slots mid-way through the year).
