I mentioned one in the Coronavirus thread. Had been off ages had just started discussing phased return then lo and behold changes it to full time a week or so ago. Then unavailable to help out on a rota due to her childs medical condition (the only bit thats half justified).

Off ages with bad ankle yet managed a 13mile run at weekend there......

Itís no real difference to teachers who get pregnant at certain times of the year so maternity is finished about 20th of June  ;)

Itís massively different. Despicable, actually.

Well planned lol. Completely different too. Making the most of maternity leave very different from just being out and out dishonest.

how much time do you think kids should be spending doing some of the school work that was sent home? I do a daily plan for my 2 last approx 1.5-2hours. They attend a bunscoil so I'd prefer them to focus more on the obair as gaeilge, and my other thing is to get them reading their Irish books out loud so they can keep practising their oral skills.

2 hours is the max for a P4 to P7 child . Maybe an  hour p1 to p3. The rest of the time I'd be letting them engage in play , creative arts , music , outdoor play ( in the garden) , things that will occupy them , outdoor camps / tents / learn more code / coding activities. Most school have sent a lorry loads of stuff to access for ideas.
I view this as a sabbatical for children . Times are scary enough ,without stressing about their learning , most of them will be in school to their 18, so plenty of time to catch up

Spot on.

I take a p6 class here in Liverpool, Iíve given them

-30 mins reading
-20 mins handwriting
-Online Maths activity ( roughly take 20/25 mins)
-English Comprehension ( roughly 25 mins)

I think that is enough. Or possibly too much 

Thereís a teacher with me lad, and she a timetable out for the kids, from 9-3. Saying do maths between 9-10 , English 10:30-11. f**king mental.



And I donít have two f**king hoots if it is done or not

INTO  are recommending it.So financially it is as good as it will be. The T & Cs are a better outcome , a few things to be finalised. The time allocation budget is a positive for teachers. Planning Preparation Allocation is a good thing , how this is funded will be of an interest to the management.
Overall , it is time to settle the on- going dispute , it looks like pay parity is restored looking at the figures and T&C's are more favourable. Plus they've got rid of Noelle Buick !

Any back pay?

Back dated pay as follows
2.25% for 2017
2%  for 2018
Already accepted
1%  for 2019.

The  pay deal would reflect pay parity with UK teachers in 2017 - 2018. A teacher on UPS 3 would get roughly a months salary in back pay .

Nobody will get rich but it is an agreeable amount. The T& C are of more interest to teaching staff .
