I was told that the school have decided not to extend my 5.5 hour a week contact as an extended school's co-ordinator. It's a shame, as that has seen me raise two grants (totalling £12500) for a refurb to the swimming pool area, arrange extra curricular activities for 19 free-school meal children (which I have evidence that their interest in learning, self confidence and behaviour has all improved as a result), and produce a newsletter with about 20 free or low cost activities nearby over the summer hols. This does leave me with a 3 hour a week contract to files papers for the SENco (special educational needs co-ordinator) but this isn't as rewarding either by money or by stimulation.
less than a week later I have been approached by the adult education department at the borough to ask
once a week
What do you think I answered?????????
less time per week, better hourly rate,
I came over all unnecessary,
and I may have offered to have the co-ordinator's babies
Can you see me doing a happy dance?
