As all ACEP classrooms are in relatively close proximity to each other, all staff should be punctual.
When a teacher has finished teaching a lesson and the next teacher has not yet arrived to teach the class, then the procedure below should be followed:

  • FREE the following period – If you are free the following period then you are asked to wait with the class until the next teacher arrives. If after five minutes the teacher has not arrived then send a student to the Teachers’ Room to politely advise/remind the colleague that it is time for them to teach.
  • TEACHING the following period – If a teacher has to teach another class then they should follow the time on their timetable and move to the next class leaving the first class unattended. However, they should direct students to sit quietly and direct the class leader to watch the class before they leave the classroom.
