I agree with Bob - go ahead if the planting site is ready - they shouldn't need much if any water if your soil is like ours at the moment.  

If your soil is really sodden I'd leave them where they are until it's a bit drier.

What is your weather like? (2)

Only down to 3.4C in the back garden last night, but ice still on the windscreen in the front at 10am this morning!  

5.4C in the back garden at the moment, a pale blue sky and still. 

What kind of Potato is this?

Did you know you can freeze brown bananas in their skins ... you don't even have to wrap them in clingfilm.  Then you can take them out and make banana cake when it's convenient, rather than feel you 'have to make it today' because there's brown bananas in the fruit bowl.  

Giving lessons in procrastination ... who?  me?

Then I'd bake it in the oven and have it with yoghurt and honey

Also, are you a union member? If not it might be a good idea to join Unison - they can be very helpful with advice over employment contracts and just what can and can't be demanded of you.

And would a qualified teacher tolerate the working conditions and erratic pay arrangements?

Do they pay you the equivalent of a qualified teachers salary? Don't answer that - but if they don't, can they afford to pay a qualified teacher, whether it's you or someone else?
