I started at a new school in September as 2nd in department and since returning after half term I have been asked to 'step up' as acting HoD. I am ok with this but as acting HoD I expected to get the same non contact a HoD would. I also have a tutor group as 2nd in department which I would not have as HoD. Therefore I am currently running a department on less time and money. I have been told that this will be reviewed after a month. Is this reasonable?
