Snow days...

Right, I am going to be short and controversially provocative here...

Some schools of which I am aware have had all week off, which of course means that (by and large) the staff have spent all day at home being paid.

Just how unreasonable is it to ask how we recover that paid for time? One might expect that much of a teacher's PPA will now be up to date, for example.

Our pupils have lost 5 days' of education, how do we catch up? By extending the school day - using the time that teachers no longer need for PPA? By extending the term by a week?

Any ideas welcome.
