    Job sharing is becoming more and popular. Ds2 has 2 teachers this year. He had it last year too with different teachers.

    I think it just took me by surprise as I've always (wrongly) assumed that all classroom teachers were full time! I really appreciate everyone's opinions of how well its worked for them as I was really shocked but now see it will probably be a good thing

    Very normal too in my experience. I think it's great as it shows the school is flexible with its staff and work arrangements which means something to me.

    I taught in this situation. It works really well. The kids mostly seem to love the different teachers. I loved teaching this way (I guess part time helped) but I also split another day over a younger class and enjoyed the difference. It means the kids can get different teaching styles (so you all learning styles are catered to) and teachers with different interests, which broadens the student's learning.

    My mum and SIL actually teach like this too, and have done for years. It's becoming much more common as people want work/life balance, as older teachers want to slow down and as parents need to work part time because of younger children and childcare arrangements.

    Been thinking of you lot's today @Mrs Tickle I hope today went ok?

    My DH said he'd get onto the education board or headmaster with a child being made to spend a day in a tent. I agree it's not great but I think it would be a last resort for me. He reiterated it's like the child being treated like a zoo animal.

    I'm not sure but it is a bit sad and I've been thinking of you and your DS. Hope it got sorted.

    I agree. I would definitely take it further. It reminds me of a school who hit the papers last year for locking a child with autism in a cage.

    In my daughters kindy class they had a boy who had sensory issues and would just go into overload. He would (by his choice) take himself under a desk and hang a table cloth over it to block out light and noise. I didn't think much of it as it was always his choice to do it and the teacher put cushions under the desk to make him comfortable.

    I don't know. If done with dignity is it ever ok? A cage seems awful (I remember the story and the pictures). And to force a child into a locked environment is equally bad.

    We don't have a uniform and the school provides everything. So yes I am ready all I need to do is make DS's sandwich in the morning and that's it.

    I agree with this. My dd has 2 teachers this year. I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes. My niece had the same arrangement in year 3 and it was not a problem.

    I am mostly ready. Dd starts year 1 on thursday and ds starts kindy on friday. Uniforms all washed, bags labeled, new shoes bought a few weeks ago.
    At our school we have to provide stationery which then gets shared with the class ie pencils, rubber, crayons, tissue, wipes, plastic sleeves, glue stick.

    Taking annual leave Thursday and Friday to do drop off and pick up. This also means I can pack lunch in the morning.
