So, I'm a HOD in a busy KS3 -5 comp. I love my job and will put the hours in because it's a great job even if day to day annoyances (SLT annd their bonkers schemes!) can get in the way! The Dept I inherited 2 years ago long to recycle as much of their 'old stuff' as poss Despite this, the school has heavily invested in a fab VLE, SMART boards in every classrooms, laptop to take home etc and yet the Dept I lead just refuse to engage. This year I really thought I had it sussed. Spent ages in the hols delivering stationery etc to desks and got up at the crack of dawn on Sept 1st to print hard copies of set lists, timetables, results etc - (all these are freely available electronically, and from home, through the school's VLE and I do send regular updates on how to access info.) The Dept achieved pleasing results this summer and I have taken pains to thank them for their hard work. Perhaps this is a back to school 'wobble', but am I out of order in thinking I might too have received a 'Thank You'?
