That few hours?

25th September 2009 at 01:00

As a deputy headteacher with full-time teaching responsibilities in an infant school, I would be pleased if you could provide me with the name and locations of the schools used for the Workloads Diary Survey, as I feel it may be necessary for me to relocate ("The 50 hours-plus profession", September 18).

I was shocked by the graph showing, apparently, that deputy headteachers work the least number of hours in both primary and secondary. All my colleagues work long hours and would agree that I work at least the same number. Obviously, in the next survey, I will ensure that my hours are counted and the graph adjusted.
