1 hour on a Thursday and 1 hour on a Friday. The rest of planning, marking etc has to be done after school or at home. We call it PPA time here - planning, preparation and assessment - and 2-3 hours is pretty standard for a full-time teacher. First-year teachers and those co-ordinating core subjects get a bit more.
This past year, I got 30 mins twice a week and an hour 3 times a week. As a team, we rarely plan during that time. I would say at least ten mins. of each prep time was spent walking the kids to and from gym, music, or wherever they were headed. Then it was a lot of catching up on emails/phone calls, etc. and planning or getting things ready in the time leftover. We often planned as a team on our lunch.
I get about 40 minutes a day but hardly any of it can be used for planning. There are always errands to run or people to call or teachers to talk to. I do most of my planning in the hour and half before school starts.
